    • The following quotes are from "Franklin's Allergy".

    • Narrator: Franklin could count by twos and tie his shoes. He could stop his bicycle and he could stop a soccer ball. But one day, Franklin couldn't stop sneezing.

    • Franklin: Why don't I just sit at the table, Beaver? Beaver: Because if you started sneezing, how could I tell which sample you're allergic to? Franklin: Oh yeah. Good point.

    • Franklin: No! I don't want to try it! Beaver: Franklin, isn't it better to know everything you're allergic to? Franklin: Not if it's cookies! Achoo!

    • Bear: I'll just have to stay covered in mud forever. Franklin: You said it.

    Notes (3)

    • This episode and others seem to indicate that Mr. Turtle is the "handyman" of the house, but in "Franklin Rides a Bike", Mrs. Turtle is seen hammering a nail into a fence-post without any help.

    • The events of "Franklin the Teacher" take place either during a school vacation or partly on a weekend, since Franklin does "school" with Harriet at nine in the morning, the time when he would normally be in school himself, were it a school day.

    • "Franklin the Teacher / Franklin's Allergy" will aired formally for the first time in the United States on Noggin on March 22.
