#PerryMason "You Need Us"

Season 9, Episode 24 "The Case of the Fanciful Frail" is a remake of Season 2, Episode 15 "The Case of the Foot-Loose Doll" which is an adaptation of Erle Stanley Gardner novel of the same name:

"The Case of the Fanciful Frail" features an instrumental of the song "You Need Us," which was sung by the Honeybees on "Gilligan's Island: Don't Bug the Mosquitoes" (1965).
