In "Franklin's Magic Christmas," Franklin's family has a large yellow car with a roof. In the TV series, the Turtle family car is white and has nothing but a windshield. Also, the Turtle family household has received some kind of paint job, as it's now brown instead of its normal white color.
Character Watch: Mr. and Mrs. Raccoon can be seen at the picnic grounds in "Franklin's Expedition." They have never been seen on the show before. Mr. and Mrs. Badger, who only rarely appear on the show, are also there.
In "Franklin the Coach," Snail is on top of Franklin's shell. After Beaver takes over coaching the soccer team and starts being bossy, Goose announces she's quitting. Franklin decides the same thing shortly after and takes off, but Snail apparently gets no say in the matter. The scene changes and Franklin is with Bear, discussing the matter. Snail is no longer present, so he apparently went home with somebody else, or has already been dropped off.

Mrs. Turtle is not seen in Mr. Owl's classroom with Mr. Turtle, suggesting that they did not attend school together and there may be something of an age difference between them.
Bear trades his Oscar Ocelot, Gordy Gopher and Marty Mongoose hockey cards for Franklin's Larry Lemming and Wallace Wallaby. Noting that he only gave him two cards, Franklin offers Bear another. He balks, however, when Bear tries to take his Bill Buffalo rookie card.

Additionally, Mrs. Bear pours some water into the reassembled vase at the end of "Franklin's Cookie Question" and some of the glued pieces break, causing a leak. The water squirts out and puddles up, reaching the edge of the table. It then remains completely stationary, not dripping off the edge of the table.
Cookie Problem 3: At the end of the story, the remaining cookies are placed on a plate. There appear to be maybe six or seven of them.
Cookie Problem 2: Later on in "Franklin's Cookie Question," Franklin and Bear pull a vase holding the cookies off of Bear's paw and it shatters. A pan shot of the scene is shown and there are at most twelve cookies scattered among the shattered base pieces. Either Bear managed to eat some of the cookies before getting his paw stuck in the vase, or Mrs. Bear ate some of them.
At one point in "Franklin's Cookie Question," the top of the cookie jar is shown and there are six cookies at the top. There are only 28 cookies, but the jar is full and it looks like it could hold more than 28.
