Episode Summary

"Franklin the Teacher"

When Franklin learns that Bear has taught his little sister, Beatrice, to count up to five, he decides it's time to start teaching Harriet things himself. He sets up a school session for her, complete with lessons on counting, painting and more. He soon begins to despair when it seems like Harriet isn't learning anything from his lessons.

"Franklin's Allergy"

One day, when playing with Bear, Franklin begins sneezing. Noting that the sneezing fits don't seem to happen all the time, his friends diagnose him as having an allergy and after some tests, conclude that he's allergic to Bear! Franklin and Bear try to find new ways to play together that won't cause Franklin to sneeze, but it turns out that the cause of Franklin's allergic reaction isn't exactly what they thought.moreless

      • 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.
