Franklin Turtle is the protagonist. He is the oldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Turtle and the 7 year old big brother of Harriet Turtle. Franklin tends to be very kind and he has a large circle of friends, but also tends to keep things to himself at times. Franklin's friends and his parents generally help to bring out the best in him, and he's also now a big brother (a desire he had expressed multiple times in the past). He takes good care of his pet goldfish, Goldie, and also has a stuffed dog named Sam who, despite growing older, he still hangs onto and communicates with. Franklin enjoys math. Unlike his other friends, he is not named for the animal that he represents, although it is used in his surname.

Description

Franklin is an imaginative and friendly turtle. He can count by twos and tie his shoes. He loves his family and friends very much and enjoys going to school and learning new things. He's best friends with Bear who he enjoys playing with and spends most of his time with. He's also very close with his friend Snail who looks up to him like a big brother. Franklin's curiosity can sometimes get him in trouble but he always makes it right in the end.
