Trivia: How many episodes of Perry Mason are there?
More than 80 novels and short stories were written by Erle Stanley Gardner.
There were 3000 radio episodes (which led to 7,420 episodes of The Edge of Night. It ran for another 30 years on television. CBS insisted Mason be given a love interest. Gardner refused, so these don’t count.)
There were 271 Perry Mason episodes on TV.
Then, 15 episodes of The New Perry Mason.
Followed by 30 made-for-TV movies.
Originally Raymond Burr auditioned for the role of District Attorney Hamilton Burger.
