* 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? [[ShipTease Subtext of a romantic relationship]] between Franklin and Samantha? 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.

** 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.

** 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.

** Franklin and Bear to [[WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse Steven and Connie.]] Franklin is the only reptile among the cast of mammals, as well as having a completely unique name unlike other animals being ADogNamedDog. Steven is the only Gem not named after a real gem. Bear and Connie are the very close best friends who both have mothers which happen to be doctors and there are episodes where they visit the hospital where their mothers work. They both share a deep friendship that practically borders on PuppyLove.

** 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.

* {{Moe}}: By far, the most lovable characters are Bear, Snail, Badger, and Goose. You just want to give them all a big hug!

** Franklin himself. Episodes like "Franklin Has A Bad Day" is just cruel and makes him a ButtMonkey when he is already in a bad mood because he dearly misses his friend Otter. "Franklin Goes to Day Camp" where he and Bear meet Possum but ends up being ignored and then punished by the coach many times for minor offenses. His day was ruined and he was practically cheated on. "Franklin's Valentines" has Franklin losing his valentine cards on the way to school and breaks down when he can't find them. "Franklin's New Hat" has him wearing a gaudy hat his sister Harriet made just to keep her happy. Unfortunately it turns out to be a burden to him until he tells his sister that it has many other uses. ([[RunningGag This show kind of likes]] to make Franklin a ButtMonkey for the sake of a plot...)
