I'm terrible with those things, but... would 12 be Lost?

Ha, you know it! :) There could be about a bazillion ways to summarize Lost, but very few shows/books/movies about boar hunting!

I kind of want to start a meme about summarizing Lost, like:
A labrador retriever's owners keep dying.
Globe-trotting assassin finds love in the after-life.
Destiny is a bitch.

Or y'know, something funnier.

8 - X Men?
15 - Beetlejuice
19 - Sunset Blvd

a couple of the others I know I'll go "oh, of course!" when all is revealed but I can't quite get it now.

8 -- Very, very close!

Correct on the rest! I think they've all been guessed now, except for 6 & 10.

The ones that I had guessed were already answered so here's my contributions:

1. Jonny Quest
2. Sounds like The Godfather but I'm not really sure
3. Archie
7. Emma (???)
9. Calvin and Hobbes
14. I think it's The Munsters or The Addams Family
15. Beetlejuice

Yes! I'm surprised no one else got Jonny Quest or Archie, LOL! Or Calvin & Hobbes.

14 Is The Munsters. It's an odd clue, I think, but you got it! Mostly, I think of that Munsters-inspired Treehouse of Horror opening. ;)

I read the comments, so this doesn't count...but I totally thought number 1 was The Venture Brothers. lol

You know, someone recommended that show to me since I love classic 'toons, but I just couldn't get into it, LOL. So you and my friend think alike!

7. Emma
8. ...This sounds really familiar but I can't quite wrap my brain around it.
9. Calvin & Hobbes
13. The Importance of Being Earnest
18. Walden

Yes on all. #8 received a very good guess from eponine119, just wrong comics 'verse!

Since I haven't read any fantasy series besides Harry Potter, LOTR & Narnia, most of those books at that site were new to me! So I went with a lot of classics. And classic comics/cartoons. Too bad the Powerpuff Girls one was far too easy to guess.
