* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: Well, ''Franklin and the Turtle Lake Treasure'' comes into mind. Lets see here... Granny's home, parents, and items were scorched to oblivion? Granny herself falling terminally ill before her seventieth birthday? Snail being treated as an eagle-hatchling snack? (With implications that he would have been devoured if it weren't for Franklin and Samantha to save him) Yeah. This movie seems to be aiming for ''Franklin's'' PeripheryDemographic. It was also promoted in French markets using the song "Tant Que J'Existerai" by Natasha St.-Pier, which, while it has a catchy tune features lyrics which translate to such stuff as "''Behind all these barriers / There are also the words / Like so many wounds / Prisons, ghettos''"

** The franchise as a whole can be seen as the Canadian version of ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' since itís a SliceOfLife childrenís show in a WorldOfFunnyAnimals, as well as characters like Franklin, Bear, and Beaver can be compared to Arthur, Buster, and Muffy respectively. As the creator of ''Arthur'', Marc Brown, is male, and the creator of ''Franklin'', Paulette Bourgeois, is female, this franchise can be seen as the DistaffCounterpart of ''Arthur'', as ''Franklin'' has a more innocent and feminine tone to it.

They'd have a point, but ''Arthur'' is also a WGBH-TV production and is considered an American-Canadian co-production.[[/note]]

** Richard Newman, voice of Mr. Turtle, had previously voiced another [[WesternAnimation/BeastWars green and gold animal]]- though that character was only green in his robot mode.

* ValuesResonance: Badger's cerebral palsy. There's no PositiveDiscrimination, nor is she InspirationallyDisadvantaged. It's just kind of there, meaning it's acknowledged, but otherwise treated as completely normal and nothing she should be self-conscious about.

** The PS2 game ''Franklin: A Birthday Surprise'' has Franklin finding things to throw a surprise party for his best friend Bear. This sounds very similar to a previous LicensedGame of [[VideoGame/SpongeBobSquarePantsSuperSponge a children's cartoon that involved the protagonist exploring the world to find things to throw a surprise party for his best friend.]]

* NoProblemWithLicensedGames: The games are passable at best, but the PS2 game is pretty decent with SceneryPorn, accurate models of the characters (likely even better than the ''Franklin and Friends'' models), great music, and it helps that the mini-games give it a bit of ReplayValue. [[note]]It's really a shame that they didn't use the pre-made models of the PS2 game for ''Franklin and Friends'' if they were planning to go CGI. They look much more like the original books and cartoon than the redesigned character models they used. But alas, likely due to licensing and copyright issues, The Game Factory owns those models and probably couldn't give them out.[[/note]]

** Poor, poor Snail. He is a snail and therefore canít travel to places quickly, which is why he leaves ''days'' early just so that he can get to school or somewhere on time. In "Hurry Up, Franklin", because the other animals were much quicker than him, none of them noticed Snail slithering on the road until Franklin, a turtle, noticed Snail crying because no one else saw him and he wonít be able to make it to Bearís birthday party on time.

There's also the fact that he often tends to end up in the middle of conflicts between Franklin and Bear and sometimes feels left out, such as ''Franklin and the Green Knight''.

* PlayingAgainstType: Creator/RichardNewman is mainly known for being [[WesternAnimation/{{Exosquad}} despicable]] or [[WesternAnimation/StreetFighter hammy]] villains, [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic grumpy beings]], or, as stated above, Rhinox (who then became the BrainwashedAndCrazy [[WesternAnimation/BeastMachines Tankor]]). In this series, he's voicing a kind-hearted, loving, and easygoing father.
