As usual I stunk, but it was fun! Correct ones in red:

1. THE BANANA SPLITS
2. the Bank of Italy--Now that I read the answer, I remember seeing that a few years ago.
3. FLYWEIGHT--All I could think of was Featherweight, but this makes sense--flies weigh less than feathers!
4. January Sixth
5. c. - Arkansas
6. THE BAMBINO
7. Santa Clara
8. Jim Backus
CRAP !!
