There are a lot of below-average walk cycles to be found on the web. A great cartoon animation resource is Richard Williams' The Animators Survival Kit. Best $20 you can spend on a cartoon animation resource. All the technical stuff is boiled down into easy-to-follow samples in a comic book-ish format.

Basically 2D animation is like 3D animation :)

DainBramaged is right the "The Animators Survival Kit" is an awesome animation book :)

Most of the pictures are 2D anyway. That book contains more than 50 pages just based on walk cycles.

These two sites have great animation references (both are 2-d).
The toon institute is a professors site at my school (he is one of the best animation prof. here).
