* {{Forgiveness}}: The episode "Franklin Forgives" in which Franklin's sister Harriet accidentally knocks the bowl of Franklin's goldfish, Goldie, into the water. Franklin is devastated and angry with Harriet. She tries various ways to make it up to him, but he eventually realizes how he would feel if he lost her when she tries to go search for the fish on her own. ** The episode ''Franklin says sorry'' also deals with this (but more directly, the importance of apologizing for something.) Bear makes a falg for the group's make believe ship, and reluctantly shows Franklin when he notices him sneaking it there. Fox bugs Franklin to tell him the secret, promising not to tell, and franklin does so. But when he and Bear return, we find Fox [[WhatTheHellHero showing the flag to the others]]. The flag ends up getting ripped, leaving Bear furious with Franklin. After a few unsuccessful attempts to make things right, he finally lures Bear to the treehouse, and learns that the word "sorry" is more important than you think.

* AnimatedAdaptation: Like most of {{Nelvana}}'s shows. Many of the first season stories are based directly on the original books. This was dropped after the first season, though some stories still occasionally incorporated story elements that first appeared in the books. In particular, ''Franklin and the Green Knight'' adapted some material from ''Franklin's Baby Sister'', while ''Franklin's Magic Christmas'' gives Franklin a line that was used as the ending of the narration of ''Franklin and Harriet''.

* AnimalsNotToScale: The woodland animals are more or less their respective sizes and we have the accurately tiny Snail, but then comes Franklin, a turtle, who is as tall as a beaver and more than half the size of a bear. * AnimatedAdaptation: Like most of {{Nelvana}}'s Creator/{{Nelvana}}'s shows.

* OddNameOut: Let's see, you got Beaver the beaver, Fox the fox, Bear the bear, Rabbit the rabbit, and Franklin...the turtle. WordOfGod says that "Franklin in the Dark" was intended to be a one-shot story with Franklin being the only character. But when she made more stories, she wanted to emphasize the importance of Franklin and that he is the main character by not giving the other characters names, thus making Franklin unique and important.

* OddNameOut: Let's see, you got Beaver PerfectHealth: Averted with Bear. On the beaver, Fox the fox, day of Halloween, Bear came down with a cold with a stuffy nose and sneezes. He couldn’t make it to the bear, Rabbit Halloween party that night. Considering that his mother is a doctor and some episodes focus on doctors and health care, the rabbit, and Franklin...show averts Perfect Health by having the turtle.doctor treat characters’ illnesses.

* AnthropomorphicShift: From the earlier books to the television series. In the earlier books, the animals looked more realistic, right down to their sizes - Bear, Fox, and Otter were much bigger than Franklin. Also, many of the characters (including Franklin's parents) walked on all fours. Starting in ''Franklin Plays the Game'', the seventh book in the series, all of the characters are the same size and the designs are more cartoony.

* FurryConfusion: On one side of the scale, we have Franklin, Beaver, Goose, Bear, Eagle, etc, which are all semi-anthropomorphic: they almost look like their real world counterparts but are capable of speaking a common language and often the four legged animals walk on two. On the other hand, we have the Henry (a hamster - ''two'' hamsters actually, both named Henry), Goldie (Franklin's pet goldfish) and a baby duckling, and many other birds who are purely zoomorphic.

** Like you wouldn't believe. “Franklin Goes to Day Camp” absolutely reeks with romantic subtext. Franklin and Bear are shown to be inseparable like a couple. [[note]]When Bear laughs at what Franklin does and calls him funny, typically girls tell guys they like that they're funny.[[/note]] At the day camp, they meet Possum and they invite him to join them. (This is the only episode Possum has appeared in, he is never mentioned again.) Things go smoothly until Franklin realizes that neither of them pay attention to him and gets angry and jealous because Possum is supposedly stealing Bear away from him, Franklin felt cheated on by Bear. Bear is very submissive and passive to Franklin, he even blatantly avoids blaming Franklin for throwing a pinecone at him when it was obvious. (And Bear is an HonorBeforeReason fellow.) Franklin cries over losing his best friend Bear and how he left him for Possum, like someone breaking up and losing their lover. In the end, after they all make “friendship bracelets”, Franklin sees them exchanging to each other and he believes that was the final nail in the coffin of their relationship, until Bear shows up and says that his bracelet was for Franklin and not Possum. Then Bear tackles Franklin and begins to tickle him for the bracelet. Bear also likes to [[https://j.gifs.com/2k8yYN.gif periodically tickle Franklin, from behind, while on top of him.]] Very, very subtle. ** "Franklin and the Pinecone Pass" has more thinly veiled subtext. Franklin wants to play a game with Bear that they love playing, but runs into Rabbit and Bear enjoying a game Rabbit made. Franklin immediately gets jealous and intervenes by trying to get Bear to play his game but they're having too much fun together. Franklin fears and laments that Bear has found a new "best friend" and doesn't want to be with him anymore. The show likes to have close pairs like Franklin/Bear, Beaver/Goose, Fox/Rabbit, and when Fox meets up with Franklin, he tells him Bear found a new best friend. Fox thinks it's silly because even though Rabbit, his best friend, is playing with Bear, Franklin's best friend, Rabbit is still best friends with Fox. As well as Bear is still Franklin's best friend. Franklin learns that you can still be "best friends" with someone even if they hang out or play with other people or someone else's "best friend".

Franklin and their two teachers.]] ''Franklin'' is Bear are shown to be inseparable like a both a series of books couple. [[note]]When Bear laughs at what Franklin does and an animated children's series featuring the adventures of anthropomorphic young turtle and his group of friends. The first book in the series was released in 1986 by Kids Can Press and its popularity led to over twenty books in the original series. In 1996, {{Nelvana}} adapted the characters for an animated series calls him funny, typically girls tell guys they like that they're funny.[[/note]] At the day camp, they meet Possum and they invite him to join them. (This is the only episode Possum has appeared on {{Nick Jr}} in the United States, the Family Channel in Canada and has since been seen around the world. In each story, in, he is never mentioned again.) Things go smoothly until Franklin explores themes realizes that neither of them pay attention to him and values of importance gets angry and jealous because Possum is supposedly stealing Bear away from him, Franklin felt cheated on by Bear. Bear is very submissive and passive to kids, including Franklin, he even blatantly avoids blaming Franklin for throwing a pinecone at him when it was obvious. (And Bear is an HonorBeforeReason fellow.) Franklin cries over losing his best friend Bear and how he left him for Possum, like someone breaking up and losing their lover. In the first day end, after they all make “friendship bracelets”, Franklin sees them exchanging to each other and he believes that was the final nail in the coffin of school, a first sleepover their relationship, until Bear shows up and says that his bracelet was for Franklin and not Possum. Then Bear tackles Franklin and begins to tickle him for the bracelet. Bear also likes to [[https://j.gifs.com/2k8yYN.gif periodically tickle Franklin, from behind, while on top of him.]] Very, very subtle. ** "Franklin and the importance of perseverance Pinecone Pass" has more thinly veiled subtext. Franklin wants to play a game with Bear that they love playing, but runs into Rabbit and being true Bear enjoying a game Rabbit made. Franklin immediately gets jealous and intervenes by trying to one's friends. get Bear to play his game but they're having too much fun together. Franklin fears and laments that Bear has found a new "best friend" and doesn't want to be with him anymore. The show likes to have close pairs like Franklin/Bear, Beaver/Goose, Fox/Rabbit, and when Fox meets up with Franklin, he tells him Bear found a new best friend. Fox thinks it's silly because even though Rabbit, his best friend, is playing with Bear, Franklin's best friend, Rabbit is still best friends with Fox. As well as Bear is still Franklin's best friend. Franklin learns that you can still be "best friends" with someone even if they hang out or play with other people or someone else's "best friend".
