Was this a Mayberry character or a Perry Mason killer?

See if you can judge these characters by their names alone!

What's in a name? Can you judge a character's… well, character from his or her name alone?

Let's put that to the test. We've mixed guilty killers from Perry Mason with far more innocent folks from The Andy Griffith Show. See if you can suss out which ones were the murderers.

Of course, you might just be a TV trivia expert and remember all these characters!

13 for 16. MeTV, give a thought to running the Warren Williams Perry Masons from the 1930's.
They were fun. Maybe the Monte Markham remake TV series.

Not only do they have to get the rights to show something but they have to be restored enough so people won't complain about the quality of the picture (substation broadcasts are of lesser quality to begin with). A cable network may have the rights to the movies (whether they show them or not). The Monte Markham series has never been rerun or released to my knowledge, so they would have to restore each episode before it could be broadcast. Another hindrance is that series is now owned by Disney (by buying FOX) and they don't seem to be interested in releasing anything that old.

Sorry to hear about the Markham Perry Mason. He was so different from Burr, people
wouldn't accept him in the role though I tuned in.
Regarding the Mason flicks from the 1930's, they are over 80 years old, younger viewers
aren't clamoring to view them(their loss).
So TCM often rents them and other oldies to other stations, another revenue stream
doesn't hurt. Comcast's channel "246 Movie" sub channel runs a lot of Bogie flicks
and B films late at night, somebody there has excellent taste in Noir especially.
In any event, I enjoy your posts Wiseguy.

Good quiz. Wish I had a Mayberry to call home about now.
