#254: The Case of the
Baffling Bug
Original Airdate: 12/12/65

Summary Edit

From The Perry Mason TV Show Book (Revised)
Tryon Laboratories hires the Drake Detective Agency to protect their latest formulas. In spite of Paul’s best efforts, there is a leak in security and some top-secret information is stolen.

One night, Horace Lehigh, an undercover agent working for Dr. Scranton, the head of the company, calls from the lab to say he knows the identity of the spy. Both Scranton and Paul rush to the lab and find Lehigh dead, floating in a vat of water.

Trivia Edit

Anomaly: Grant Williams, listed in the trailing credits as Dr. Todd Meade, is identified as Dr. Todd Mead on his laboratory door. Submitted by daveb, 12/21/2007.
+ The closed captions as of today also use the latter spelling. Submitted by gracenote, 5/24/2011.

Alizia Gur (variously spelled Alizia and Aliza), makes her only Perry appearance here playing Dr. Nina Revelli. Ms. Gur was born in Israel and served in the Israeli military. She was also a semi-finalist in the Miss Universe Pageant of 1960, representing Israel. Submitted by PaulDrake33, 12 September 2009.

Location: Yet again Perry finds a parking spot right in front of the Stanley Mosk Courthouse in Downtown Los Angeles (~32 minutes into the episode). Submitted by Eric Cooper, 25 September 2010.

Sightings / Uncredited Actors: Don Anderson appears in the first row of the courtroom gallery, wearing the same dark-rimmed glasses as in episode 252, TCOT Silent Six. And “Miss Carmody” (with a somewhat unflattering hairdo) sits immediately to his right. Submitted by FredK, 20 December 2010.
+ As Paul Drake enters the courtroom and sits behind Perry, we can see the Quiet Old Man #1 seated in the back row of the gallery. Submitted by gracenote, 5/24/2011.

Continuity Error: In the Tryon dining room, we find Drake, Mason, Scranton, and Rupert using the Curious Coffee Set with matching plates. In a close-up of the detective’s hand, however, the set has magically transformed into a classic pattern china. Submitted by gracenote, 5/24/2011.
