* 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]]

** And before you bring it up, yes, Snail is the biggest offender. Snail is a boy but voiced by a woman.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeArt: Sure, the CGI series looks great, the films are beautiful, and the original series remains the most well-known with great animation, but what goes unappreciated are the books themselves. Brenda Clark, the illustrator, drew each page carefully by hand and it would take nearly over a year to complete a book drawing by herself! The backgrounds are beautifully detailed, the colors are breathtaking, and the character design is brilliant and adorable. Compare [[http://img.rlsbb.com/images/2013/02/20/OPMPvWJUpzENU.jpg the animated series]] to [[http://100scopenotes.com/files/2013/05/FranklinGoestoSchool_Spread-page-0.jpg the original books]] and look at how detailed the animals' fur are. She truly deserves more credit than we give her.

** Badger. An adorable and shy girl who suffers from cerebral palsy and therefore needs crutches to help her walk around. In the Back to School Special, she's stuck on the sidelines, because she can't play soccer. Thankfully, everyone gets along with her and they enjoy being with her, but still, a disabled child in a SugarBowl show like this can be jarring and quite depressing. (It's likely that due to parents and children finding her depressing, she was removed from ''Franklin and Friends'' and is never mentioned again. On the othee hand, copping out on Badger was cold.)

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
