"Franklin's Good Deeds"

Mr. Groundhog has hurt his foot, so Franklin and his friends are helping him with chores around his garden. Mr. Groundhog says that they should take a break, but Franklin wants to pick just one last pumpkin. As he goes to pick the pumpkin, a reporter for the newspaper, Mr. Coyote comes along. He does a story on how the kids are helping Mr. Groundhog. He takes their picture, but Franklin doesn't get back in time for it. The story is published in the paper, with the picture. However, Franklin's not in the picture and although he's mentioned in the article, they accidentally print his name as "Frank." Nobody's going to know that's him. So Franklin tries doing a series of good deeds so he can get in the paper. But nothing works, the newspaper reporter always leaves him out. Then, while walking in the woods, Franklin finds a wallet that somebody lost. He checks and it belongs to Mr. Beaver. He races to return it and ends up bumping into Mr. Groundhog. Franklin notices Mr. Groundhog's trash bag and jokes that he must have had a very large lunch. Mr. Groundhog explains that it's actually litter; he picks up whenever he goes for a walk in the forest. Franklin tells him that he should do that someplace where people can see him, but Mr. Groundhog explains that he doesn't care about that. He just does it because it makes him feel good. It gives him a "special feeling." Franklin continues on to return the wallet, but nobody's home. So he just drops it in the mailchute. When Mr. Beaver returns home, he's pleased to find it, but doesn't know who to thank. He decides to write a letter to the paper to thank the person who returned his wallet. Sometime in the future, Franklin comes to the forest to help out Mr. Groundhog with his picking up of litter. He puts his hand on his heart and asks Mr. Groundhog if you usually get that "special feeling" right there. Mr. Groundhog says that indeed, he believes you do.

"Franklin's Submarine"

Franklin's selling of some of his old toys. Why? He's raised $4.50 and if he can raise $4.50 more, he can order a submarine through the mail. Bear sees what he's doing and says that he'll chip in the other half, since Franklin is his best friend. That way, Franklin doesn't have to sell his toys. Franklin waits and waits for the submarine to arrive, but it takes weeks. Finally the mail-carrier has a package for him. It's his submarine. But how can it be? It's just small little package. When Franklin opens it, he's shocked: it turns out it's just a cardboard submarine. Beaver tells him that he should send it back and get his money back. So Franklin tries it, but he doesn't have enough money for the postage. So he sets up another toy sale, when Bear comes along and says he has a strange feeling he remembers this happening before. Franklin breaks down and shows Bear the cardboard submarine. But Bear's not so upset about it. It may be cardboard, but it has a real periscope. They go ahead and assemble it and turn out to have actual fun, using their imaginations.moreless
