* 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. [[WordOfGod Barbara Hale]] (Della Street), however, said in a relatively recent interview that the cases lost by Perry had been declared mistrials off the air.

* WackyAmericansHaveWackyNames: Hamilton Burger.
** Plenty of examples from other characters, too. Mauvis Meade/Morley Theilman/Jackson Sidemark, anyone?
*** Many of Perry's cases involved high society people or old money. Just the types to have stuffy, old, out-of-date names like the above. Plenty of other clients and side characters had perfectly sensible names for the times (the 50s and 60s)
