* MonsterIsAMommy: In ''Franklin and the Green Knight'', Franklin and Snail find the "magic cherry tree" and then start getting pecked like crazy by a seemingly vicious warbler bird. It turns out that she's just protecting her eggs, though once Franklin and Snail state that they don't want her eggs, she becomes positively pleasant. This also happens with a bird dubbed the Wily Winged Beast in the stage show ''Franklin and the Adventures of the Noble Knights'', who is NotEvilJustMisunderstood and gets her own song about it titled "Misunderstood."

It turns out that she's just protecting her eggs, though once Franklin and Snail state that they don't want her eggs, she becomes positively pleasant. The same is also true of Eagle beforehand, which Franklin equates with the monster from the Green Knight story and draws his paper sword as if to fight her. She tells him that she has no interest in fighting him, gives both him and Snail a ride, and later says she has to go because she needs to take care of her eaglets. This also happens with a bird dubbed the Wily Winged Beast in the stage show ''Franklin and the Adventures of the Noble Knights'', who is NotEvilJustMisunderstood and gets her own song about it titled "Misunderstood."

* RuleNumberOne: In ''Franklin's Big Adventure'', one of the stage shows, Franklin is seriously weirded out by the seeming oddness of the museum-guide, Carbunkel, who presents herself as a "highly respected professional guide person" and among other things presents a list of rules for the museum visit with the help of a group of singers, in the middle of a song she's singing herself.
-->'''Miss Carbunkel''': But before we make our way beyond those doors, there are a few things we must all be aware of.
-->'''Vocalists''': ''Rrrule number one!''
-->'''Miss Carbunkel''': Stay together. We can't have you youngsters running all over the place.
-->'''Vocalists''': ''Rrrule number two!''
-->'''Miss Carbunkel''': Don't touch anything! The museum is filled with old and very delicate objects that haven't felt the warmth of a human hand in thousands of years. And...
-->'''Vocalists''': ''Rrrule number three!''
-->'''Miss Carbunkel''': When I say "JustForFun/{{hello}}," I want you to say hello right back at me!
