Episode Summary

"Gee Whiz Franklin"

When Rabbit tells Franklin and his friends about the "Gee Whiz Challenge," a contest to do something fun for 24 hours and get in a magazine, everyone jumps at the chance to become famous. They soon find that not only is it harder than they think, but there are other things that are more important.

"Franklin Can't Wait"

Franklin and his friends are going to the circus and he told all his friends to come early - but didn't tell his parents. They all soon become very bored by the long wait. When one friend arrives later than all the rest of them, they show that they can still have a good time, even with the long wait.moreless

    • QUOTES (12)

      • The following quotes are from "Gee Whiz Franklin".

      • Narrator: Franklin could count by twos and tie his shoes. He could swim in a race and finish first. But one day, Franklin learned that putting friends first is how to be a real winner.

      • Skunk: Oh, Rabbit, I'm sorry. I wrecked your Gee Whiz Challenge.
        Rabbit: Ah, that's okay. I was tired of hopping around anyway. And besides, you're out!

      • Skunk: Sorry guys.
        Bear: Ah, it's okay, Skunk.
        Franklin: Yeah. Friends are more important than being in a magazine.

      • The following quotes are from "Franklin Can't Wait".

      • Narrator: Franklin could count by twos and tie his shoes. He knew the number of seconds in a minute and the number of minutes in an hour. But one day, two hours seemed to take forever.

      • Mr. Turtle: Guess who's just a bit excited about the c-i-r-c-u-s.
        Franklin: You mean circus, Dad? You've got to get up pretty early to fool me.
        Mrs. Turtle: You mean earlier than this?

      • Mr. Turtle: Great. I could use an extra hand to get the job faster.
        Franklin: Exactly what I was thinking, Dad! Your left hand might as well be painting, too. See? Your left hand does the first coat and your right hand paints the second one.
        Mr. Turtle: (chuckles) I've got to hand it to you, Franklin. That's a solution I wouldn't have thought of.

      • Beaver: Franklin told everyone to come early, but he didn't tell his parents.

      • Snail: I came as fast as I could. I hope I'm not late.
        Beaver, Fox and Franklin: (groan) You're not late.

      • Snail: How long until we're going?
        Beaver, Fox and Franklin: (exasperated groans)
        Snail: Did I say something wrong?

      • Franklin: Time went by so fast.
        Mrs. Turtle: You see? Having a little patience wasn't so hard.
