11 out of 11. The only one that I had to guess at was the name of the theme song. I guessed right.

10/11. The first question was kind of tricky. He did lose a few cases, but none on camera.

The quiz named two of the people who subbed for burr while he was injured. but they left out others, such as walter pidgeon, hugh o'brian (wyatt earp) and others.

10/11 WAIT... I know Raymond Burr and William Hopper both auditioned for the roles of Perry and Paul Drake but I didn't know Burr auditioned for the role of Hamilton Burger. What else did he audition for...Dela? ...Gertie? ...Tragg???
originally, william talman, who ended up as hamilton burger, was going to be mason, and burr was going to be burger. But Erle Stanley Gardner himself, who wrote all the mason books, said that burr should be mason.

You got 10 out of 11
You only got three or fewer wrong — just like Perry Mason with his cases!
Missed #11. Answered too quickly.

11/11 As for #4, TCM often runs Perry Mason movies ( the original 1930s ones) and they are highly amusing in light of the later series.
