  8. 6. Is it Cliffhangers, the short-lived NBC series? I know one of the self-contained shows in the series featured Dracula, portrayed by Michael Nouri.

    1. Terrific jobs! The three shows were "Stop Susan Williams" (TV journalist), "The Secret Empire" (U.S. Marshal), and "The Curse of Dracula."

  10. 10. "Jonny Quest" (or, for sticklers, "The Adventures of Jonny Quest").
    12. How about "Gibbsville," a short-lived mid-'70s drama starring Gig Young and John Savage?
    I don't see an answer listed for 2., so at the risk of being redundant I'll suggest "Kentucky Jones," a 1963 NBC comedy/drama with a post-Gunsmoke Dennis Weaver. I recall watching it right after "The Famous Adventures of Mr. Magoo."

  12. Ok, I wasn't sure about this one, but is #18, the Henry Fonda and Ron Howard series, The Smith Family? It sort of fits the description...
