* Franklin and Fox are good friends who are also competitive rivals but then there are times when they are very close friends and end up with FoeYay.
** In "Hurry Up, Franklin", when Franklin shows off the things he collected, [[http://i.imgur.com/zTuFaif.png?1 Fox gets up close and handsy with Franklin.]]
* Beaver and Goose are very close as well. Also, Fox and Rabbit have their moments.

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zuSXJVVp1Zw In one of the video games]], Bear stops Franklin to make him play "Red Light, Green Light". Franklin sneaks up while Bear is pushing himself against a log and then turns around. When Franklin succeeds, he smacks Bear in his butt. Bear made up a game just so he could get Franklin to touch his butt. Yeah, at this point they're not even trying to hide it anymore.
** In "Franklin's New Hat", Franklin was blinded by his sister's hat during musical chairs and accidentally sat on Bear's lap.
-->'''Bear''': Uhh, Franklin, I am not a chair...


** And from the same episode above, because Bear's parents were going to deliver the baby, Bear gets to sleep over at Franklin's house. A fairly innocent scene for kids with hidden meanings that can be caught by older viewers. They stay up late at night, playing quietly as to not wake Franklin's parents. Franklin and Bear are then seen to be [[http://i.imgur.com/fFYbXd3.png "playing with themselves" (literally)]], but adults know the DoubleEntendre here. Then, Franklin and Bear are [[http://i.imgur.com/4y1ebJ6.png "playing under the covers"]], curiously hiding what they are doing under the sheets, complete with Bear yet again tickling Franklin. [[note]][[http://i.imgur.com/oxbxVG8.png Not to mention that they actually knock the chair down.]][[/note]] Looks more like the creators seriously just snuck in GRatedSex here!

** The entirety of "Franklin Goes to Day Camp". See HomoeroticSubtext and GettingCrapPastTheRadar on the Main page. Bear also like to routinely tickle Franklin, [[https://j.gifs.com/2k8yYN.gif in a rather unusual position...]], parents' eyebrows were indeed raised.

** The entirety of "Franklin Goes to Day Camp". See HomoeroticSubtext When Franklin goes to day camp, he and GettingCrapPastTheRadar on Bear partner up together for the Main page.activities, but also lets a character named Possum join them when he has no partner. However, as Franklin discovers that Possum only wants to play with Bear, he gets jealous of Possum stealing all of Bear's attention. After getting in trouble, he cries over losing Bear. While the others are making friendship bracelets, he worries that Bear and Possum will be "new best friends" if they exchange theirs and begs the coach to let him make one for Bear. Upon seeing them exchanging bracelets, Franklin gets upset again until Bear comes and says that they were just showing each other their bracelets and that his is for Franklin.

** "Franklin and the Pinecone Pass" has Franklin excited to play a game with Bear, but finds Bear playing with Rabbit. When Bear would rather play Rabbit's game, Franklin instantly gets jealous and tries to get Bear to play with him. When that doesn't work, he plays his game with Snail instead but focuses more on trying to get Bear's attention, almost as if he is trying to make Bear jealous. When Fox comes and sees everyone else playing, Franklin laments his fear of Bear having a "new best friend" in Rabbit, but Fox thinks it's silly because he and Rabbit don't always play together despite being best friends, which shows Franklin that "best friends" can still play with other friends. Franklin feels better in the end after Bear says that he will always be Franklin's "best friend."


Added DiffLines:

** In "Franklin and the Turtle Lake Treasure," we are introduced to Franklin's Aunt Lucy and her goddaughter Sam. After getting off to a bad start, Franklin is encouraged by his parents to try being nice to her. Because of this, he starts hanging out with Sam more than Bear, Beaver, and Snail. Beaver and Snail have no problem with this, but Bear grows jealous every time Franklin chooses her over him. Eventually, after Franklin chooses to team up with Sam instead of Bear to look around for Granny Turtle's time capsule, Bear gets upset and walks off. When Franklin goes to talk to him, Bear complains about Franklin forgetting about them and always being nice to Sam, even going as far as to call Sam his "girlfriend," almost as if he is jealous of them being together. Also, at the end of the movie, they share a hug.

** In "Franklin's Valentines", Franklin makes heartfelt valentines for all of his friends. Usually, boys don't give other boys "traditional" valentine cards (traditional as in, pink and red colored hearts with glitter and pastel colors), but Bear and Franklin take this UpToEleven. We see Bear's card to Franklin that has the two of them sitting under a tree surrounded by hearts, no biggie. But then we see Franklin's card to Bear and it is full of hearts with Cupid's arrows (which implies PuppyLove!) and a drawing of Franklin and Bear making up two halves of a heart with wings. Take of that as you will. They might just be kids, but [[ShipTease this is really pushing it...]]

** Whenever Bear actually doesn't want to hang out with Franklin, the show itself plays this off as "wrong" and Franklin gets upset and tries to fix things by getting Bear to hang out with him again. It's okay for Franklin to hang out with others but when Bear hangs out with others, excluding Franklin, [[StatusQuoIsGod it's against status quo.]]
