* TheCaseOf: Every novel, theatrical release, TV episode (both series), and TV movie had this at the start of their title. Often they had an alliterative subject: the Poison Pen, the Dangerous Doll, etc.



* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: Every novel's title started with the words "The Case of (the)...", as did every theatrical release, every episode of both TV series, and every TV movie. Often they had an alliterative subject: the Poison Pen, the Dangerous Doll, etc.



* TheCaseOf: The novels, most of films, and the individual episodes of the TV series all used this template.

The TV series was revived in 1973 as ''The New Perry Mason'', with a completely different cast led by Monte Markham, but it only lasted one season. It was then revived ''again'' as a made-for-TV movie, ''Perry Mason Returns'' in 1985, with the surviving cast of the original show, plus William ''Series/TheGreatestAmericanHero'' Katt as Paul Drake Jr - a slanted case of RealLifeRelative, as Katt was the son of Barbara Hale. The success of this TV movie spurred the production of ''twenty-nine'' more ''Perry Mason'' TV movies between 1985 and 1994, with the last installment airing after Raymond Burr's death in 1993. (NBC made a few more TV movies without Raymond Burr before calling it quits.)

* DemotedToSatelliteLoveInterest: {{Defied}}. Della Street turned down several proposals of marriage by Perry, because she wanted to be a part of his life and she knew that meant being a part of his work -- and she expected that to [[QuittingToGetMarried end after marriage]].

** Averted for the TV movies, which were set in UsefulNotes/{{Denver}}. Mason may have passed the Colorado bar... or Colorado admitted him on motion.[[note]] Many [[TheSeveralStates US states]] allow lawyers who have practiced in other states for a certain time (usually 5 of the last 7 years) to practice there without taking the bar exam. Notable exceptions to this rule include California and Florida.[[/note]]

* InvincibleHero: Perry Mason. Legend has it that the TV writers wanted to do at least one episode where Perry lost, but Erle Stanley Gardner shot them down. Rescuing a client from the electric chair at the last possible moment was as close as it got.
