"Franklin and the Puppy"

Franklin and Bear are playing when a field, when a small puppy comes up to Franklin. They play catch with it and find that it's pretty good at it. Bear notices that he doesn't have a collar. Franklin, thinking that it might be a stray, decides that they can't simply leave it out its own. He's going to take it home with him. Bear's not sure it's a good idea, but he does agree that it shouldn't be left out to fend for himself. So Franklin takes the puppy home and explains the situation. His parents agree to take the puppy in, but with a caveat- they're going to search for the puppy's rightful owner. Franklin begins caring for the puppy and the puppy is a lot of work. One morning, Franklin is leaving for school. He wants to say goodbye to the puppy, but he can't find it. It turns out that the puppy snuck into Franklin's backpack. Franklin doesn't find this out until the puppy pokes out of his backpack on the bus. When Franklin gets to school, he tells the puppy to wait for him outside. But the puppy follows him inside unseen and creates quite a commotion running around the oom. Mr. Owl finally catches him and asks who he belongs to. Franklin admits the puppy is his and apologizes for the mess. But Mr. Owl doesn't mind, saying that it's not often they start their mornings with that much excitement. The search for the puppy's owner continues, but Mr. and Mrs. Turtle also buy a collar and leash for him. Then, one day, Franklin is at his house with Bear, when someone comes knocking at the door. It's the owner of the puppy! Franklin panics. He's grown attached to the puppy and doesn't want to give him away. So he tries to sneak out of the house with Bear, who definitely doesn't think this is such a good idea. But then he hears the puppy's owner talking about how much she misses the puppy. He decides to do the right thing and return the puppy. The owner's mother explains that they have the puppy stay at her Granny's place, but Grandma isn't much for dogs and she's also getting up in years and so that's how the puppy got loose. Franklin volunteers to watch the puppy from now on when they go away and the owners agree.

"Franklin Takes the Bus"

Mr. Owl has a lot of neat toys in his toy chest. One of them is a toy bus, which Franklin really likes to play with. He likes it so much, that he decides he wants to take it home with him. So he takes it, but without asking. He'll just return it the next day. That afternoon, Bear comes over to Franklin's house and sees Franklin playing with the bus. He says that it looks like the bus in Mr. Owl's oom and Franklin says that it is. Bear asks him if he asked if he could take it and Franklin admits that he didn't. He doesn't think that Mr. Owl will mind though, as he never plays with it. Bear's not so sure, but Franklin reassures him that everything will be okay. However, everything isn't okay. The next day, Franklin forgets to take the toy bus with him to school. He hopes that no one will notice that it's missing, but Beaver does. She needed it for the safety demonstration she was going to do today. Franklin starts to admit that he took it, but Mr. Owl cuts him off before he can finish his sentence and Franklin ends up saying that he wants to help look for it. The entire searches for the bus, but naturally they come up empty. That afternoon, Franklin and Bear continue playing with the bus. Franklin says that he's definitely going to return it tomorrow. Then, Franklin and Bear have to leave and they leave the bus, as well as some other toys, in a hollowed log. Beaver and Goose are playing hide-and-seek and Goose hides in the log. When Beaver finds her, she notices the toy bus and Franklin's other toys. She thinks that the toys must belong to the "thief," the one who took the bus. So Beaver takes the bus and the toys to the school and starts talking about a thief. She says that she's going to find out who this thief is. So Franklin admits the truth: there is no thief. He's the one who took the bus. Mr. Owl's not happy that Franklin took it without asking, but he's glad Franklin told the truth. Beaver goes ahead with the safety demonstration, with the help of some of Franklin's other toys. But not before asking Franklin if she can borrow them first.
