These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Nightmare Fuel: The Gargoyles in the stage show Franklin and the Adventures of the Noble Knights can be this if you're a four year old, especially if you have front row seats. Glowing eyes may not be scary to older viewers, but for toddlers...
The 90s computer game "Franklin's Reading World" had a scene where he was in the forest. And the trees looked relatively scary.
Periphery Demographic: Parents who have seen the show with their children and enjoyed it; those who have grown up with the series; and a loyal core who appreciates it for any number of reasons.
Stop Helping Me!: Snail's not to fond of people helping him out too much, as he is capable of doing a plethora of things all on his own.
Tastes Like Diabetes: Despite its target audience, Franklin and Franklin and Friendsaverts this for the most part. Occasionally however, some episodes just end up being a bit too sweet.
Tear Jerker: Granny's tale of losing her parents and home in a fire in Franklin and the Turtle Lake Treasure definitely qualifies. The "I Wonder" song from Franklin and the Green Knight is another example. And one could easily shed a tear for Harriet in Franklin's Magic Christmas when she breaks down crying after she and Franklin get lost in the woods and Franklin becomes rather angrier than he should. (Though, to Franklin's credit, he realizes quickly that he messed up and he also takes responsibility.)
Actually, most of the younger male characters were voiced by young boys.
And before you bring it up, yes, Snail is the biggest offender.
What Do You Mean, It's for Kids?: 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? 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'sPeriphery Demographic.
The Woobie: If it's possible for an inanimate object to qualify, then how about the treefort? Depending on whether or not you consider Franklin and Friends an Alternate Continuity, the kids are now on their third treefort. The first one was blown down by a stiff wind in the original series in "Franklin Plays it Safe." A new one was built, and this one (possibly) was knocked down (along with the tree that it was in) by a fierce storm in "Franklin Sees a Storm" on Franklin and Friends. One really begins to wonder just what's up with treeforts in Franklin's world. (As an amusing sidenote, Franklin / Franklin and Friends airs on a network called "Treehouse TV" in Canada.)
