* {{Jerkass}}: It's another case of DependingOnTheWriter, but his {{Jerkass}} tendencies were ''very'' noticeable in Seasons 1-3 of the Original Animation. For example, in ''Franklin's Bicycle Helmet''; he and Beaver degrade Franklin ''and'' '''Rabbit''' for having quirks when they get examined for their bicycle safety skills. Fortunately, he mellows out in Seasons 4-6, and continues to be a collected individual in ''Franklin and Friends''.

* TheBusCameBack: Otter returned for a brief visit in the television series in the second season. In the story, Otter is upset when she returns, only to find that the games that she and her friends once played aren't so fun anymore and that many familiar local landmarks are gone. Together, she, Franklin and Bear realize that by learning the new things that they all enjoy, they can still have fun together. This story was also released as a RecursiveAdaptation book in the Franklin TV storybooks series. The only other time Otter was seen on the show was on a banner in an episode from the sixth season, and she is neither seen nor mentioned in ''Franklin and Friends''.

* '''PutOnABus''': In both the original books and the television show, Otter moves away from Woodland to a big city early on in the franchise. This makes Franklin greatly sad, but he is cheered up by deciding to stay in contact with her through letters, though this is never depicted later in the series. Otter appears in the intro sequence of the first season of the television show. The intro sequence was changed beginning in the second season to no longer show any scenes involving Otter and was never altered again from that point on.

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Moose is introduced in "Franklin's New Friend" and only appears later in a smattering of book releases and no further episodes of the television show, completely disappearing without any explanation. Possible reasons include his large size making him a pain to animate/draw and perhaps that he was never intended to be a regular character, but they wanted to adapt the book for television anyway. Even so, the way he was [[IncrediblyLamePun Chucked out]] was more than little jarring considering that one of the big [[AnAesop Aesops]] of the story was about making a new friend. (Note: A group of three moose that may or may not be Moose and his family are briefly seen in the opening of ''Franklin and the Green Knight''.)

* BusyBeaver: To some extent, but her father, as we've seen, he is, very much a workaholic, in fact, Beaver has warned her friends before not to let him see them, otherwise, he would put them to work. In one episode, where Franklin and his friends try to find somewhere to have a clubhouse, one place they try is Mr. Beaver's tool shed, and sure enough, when he finds them in there, he appears happy to have extra hands to help him get more work done. Mr. Beaver's signature attire is also a tool belt.
