Mr. Mole is a childhood friend of Mr. Turtle and the owner of Woodland's general store. His gumball machine is popular amongst the children of the town, while Mr. Turtle often visits his shop to get the things that he needs for the family garden. He is something of an amateur paleontologist, having a collection of fossils, and is happy to share is knowledge about them with the children of the town.

He is something of an amateur paleontologist, having a collection of fossils, and is happy to share is knowledge about them with the children of the town. He is generally a genial fellow and ha come to trust Franklin for his honesty, so much so that he is willing to believe without question a seemingly outrageous but nevertheless true tale in one installment.

Granny is Franklin's grandmother on his father's side. She lives alone in a house not far from Franklin and his family. Franklin's paternal grandfather is never seen on the series (though he is briefly mentioned), and it is generally assumed that she is a widow, though this was never confirmed in the series itself. Granny is not seen in ''Franklin and Friends'' and the role that she played seems to have been largely filled by Aunt T.

* ADogNamedDog: Actually [[AvertedTrope Averted]]. Unlike the other characters, he's a turtle named Franklin. This is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] upon in ''Back To School With Franklin''; as Ms. Koala, Franklin's substitute teacher, accidentally referred to him as Turtle, while taking a roll call.

* OddCouple: Franklin and Bear. They are inseparable and they are a turtle, a slow herbivore, and a bear, a hungry carnivore (well, omnivore).



* PlatonicLifePartners: He shared a very deep bond with Otter before she and her family moved away. Needless to say, Franklin was the only one among his friends who was devastated when she moved away.

* AmbiguouslyGay: He is ''very'' close and attached to Franklin, more than best friends usually are, and exclusively hangs out with Franklin for most of his time. He is tender, sensitive, effeminate, and doesn't have any interest in girls unlike Franklin. Bear dresses flamboyantly in a small and unbuttoned blue sleeveless vest [[note]]Which is a gay cowboy stereotype and in RealLife, kids don’t walk around and dress like that.[[/note]] (This is even much more odd considering that the characters don’t really need to wear clothes. It’s definitely not going to keep him very warm anyways which means it could be a gaudy fashion statement.) Bear also likes to get ''very'' touchy-feely with Franklin and routinely tickles him, [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar in odd positions.]]

* '''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.

Franklin is a young turtle whom aims to please. He's an excitable kid, and is a great friend to all he meets. He's always ready to give a helping hand to his family, friends, and community. Like most kids however, Franklin isn't perfect, but has his family to give him guidance, and steer him in the right direction.

Introduced into the book series in ''Franklin's Baby Sister'' and in the television series in ''Franklin and the Green Knight'' respectively, Harriet is Franklin's sister, whom is getting used to the world around her. She idolizes Franklin, but is an independent turtle in her own right. She has a regular playmate in Bear's little sister Beatrice, though she made a new friend named Kit (Beaver's little brother) in ''Back to School with Franklin''.

* BigEater: At any given time, he may be snacking on something. The television shows often depict him munching on cookies or other savories, though the Franklin stage show ''Franklin and the Adventures of the Noble Knights'' indicated a preference for berries and jam, possibly an attempt to promote healthier snacking.

** A shining example would have to be in "Franklin Goes to School":
-->'''Bear''': ''(looking panicked)'' Hey, did anyone bring an extra snack?\\
'''Beaver''': Didn't you eat any breakfast?\\
'''Bear''': Yeah, but that was an hour ago.\\
'''Franklin''': ''(pulls out carrots)'' Here, Bear.\\
'''Bear''': ''(deadpan)'' Oh, carrots. Have you got anything else?\\
'''Beaver''': ''(rolls eyes)'' Ugggghh!
** Even after Franklin gives him a muffin, Bear still gets hungry a few minutes later and asks Franklin for the carrots.


Added DiffLines:

* GrowlingGut: Happens very often to show how big his appetite is and how much he gets hungry.

* PurityPersonified: Kind, noble, honest, optimistic, and pure of heart, he definitely stands above the others and even Franklin.

* ButtMonkey: Some episodes go a bit overboard with the misfortunes that poor Franklin goes through just for the sake of a plot.
