* RunningGag: A bit of a running gag in the original television series and films is that Franklin is unable to self-right if we falls over backwards on his shell. In ''Franklin and Friends'', however, he is able to do so.

In ''Franklin and Friends'', however, he is able to do so. Also, he and Harriet both have no problem self-righting after falling over on their own to make snow-angels in ''Franklin's Magic Christmas'', suggesting it runs in part on RuleOfFunny.

He and his friends get tricked, however, because while there is one of these at the party, it's not Bear, who is home sick with a cold. It turns to be their teacher, Mr. Owl, who heard that Bear was at home and decided to play a trick on all of them.

* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Franklin has this reaction in the stage ''Franklin's Class Trip'' when he and his class visit the science museum and are greeted in song by their "highly respected and professional" but nevertheless somewhat eccentric guideperson, Miss Carbunkel. He's already scared because of an incorrect belief that they're going to see a real live dinosaur there and Miss Carbunkel's oddness doesn't do anything to help. He tries to rope Snail into his plan to leave as well, but Snail is actually the voice of reason who puts the kibosh on the plan, noting that the bus back doesn't come until well after lunchtime and they need to just have courage and "do this."
