FRANKLIN COULD
COUNT BY TWOS AND TIE HIS SHOES. HE COULD SAVE MONEY
IN HIS PIGGY BANK AND MAKE A NEW BOX OF
CRAYONS LAST FOR MONTHS. BUT ONE DAY, FRANKLIN
WANTED TO MAKE HIS
COOKIES LAST A LONG TIME. AND THAT WAS
VERY HARD TO DO. Franklin:
25, 26… Bear:
27. 28. THIS IS THE
BIGGEST TRAY
OF CHOCOLATE
CHIP COOKIES WE’VE EVER MADE! I THINK THEY’RE
ALSO THE TASTIEST
YOU’VE EVER MADE. MMM, YOU’RE
RIGHT, MOM. I WANT THIS BATCH
TO LAST A LONG TIME. [ Gulping ] MMM. HEY, WAIT A MINUTE. Mrs. Bear:
UH-UH-UH! YOU BOYS DID SAY
YOU WANTED THEM TO LAST A LONG
TIME, DIDN’T YOU? YEAH. UH-HUH. LET’S SEE, 28 COOKIES
DIVIDED BY THE 2 OF YOU IS 14 EACH. YOU KNOW, YOU COULD MAKE THEM
LAST FOR 2 WEEKS. THAT’S… ONE
COOKIE A DAY! THAT’S RIGHT. DO YOU THINK THAT
SOUNDS LIKE A GOOD PLAN? SOUNDS GOOD TO ME. ME TOO. [ Humming ] IT GIVES US
SOMETHING TO
LOOK FORWARD
TO EVERY DAY. [ Sighing ] I SURE WISH IT
WAS TOMORROW. I CAN’T WAIT TO
HAVE ANOTHER ONE
OF THOSE COOKIES. HMM. MAYBE THERE’S A
WAY WE CAN HAVE
ANOTHER COOKIE TODAY. REALLY? SURE. HERE’S TO-
MORROW’S COOKIE. THEN WHAT
ABOUT TOMORROW? WE SKIP A DAY. SO WE WON’T HAVE
ANOTHER COOKIE
UNTIL FRIDAY? RIGHT! OR WE COULD
EAT FRIDAY’S
COOKIE TOMORROW. OR WE COULD
SKIP THE WEEKEND AND HAVE OUR SATURDAY
AND SUNDAY COOKIES TODAY. Mrs. Bear:
SO MUCH FOR
EATING ONE A DAY. HI, MOM. MAYBE WE’VE
HAD ENOUGH FOR
TODAY, BEAR. JUST SMELLING THEM IS
GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME. [ Sniffing ] THEY’LL NEVER
LAST IF YOU
EAT YOUR WAY INTO NEXT WEEK. MAYBE PUTTING
THEM OUT OF SIGHT WILL HELP TAKE
YOUR MIND OFF THEM. GOOD IDEA, I’VE
FORGOTTEN ABOUT
THEM ALREADY. [ Humming ] [ ♪♪♪ ] CHOCOLATE CHIP,
DO YOU READ ME? Bear: [ Over radio]
Loud and clear, Oatmeal. MOTHER BIRD HAS
LEFT THE NEST. Huh? What did you say? [ Chuckling ]
YOUR MOM HAS
LEFT THE HOUSE. OH, ROGER, OATMEAL. I’M GOING IN. [ ♪♪♪ ] Franklin: [ Over radio ]
Get a big one, Bear. I mean, Chocolate Chip. ROGER, OATMEAL. [ ♪♪♪ ] Bear:
It’s empty! THE COOKIE JAR’S EMPTY? THERE’S NOTHING
BUT CRUMBS IN HERE. LOOK AROUND, MAYBE
YOU’VE GOT THE WRONG JAR. THERE IS NO OTHER JAR. The cookies are gone! WHERE DID THEY GO? Bear:
[ Gasping ] Mrs. Bear: [ Over radio ]
Don’t worry, Franklin, no one ate them. HUH? OH, UM, HEH-HEH. HELLO. I THOUGHT YOU TWO
MIGHT FIND IT HARD TO RESIST THOSE COOKIES, SO I PUT
THEM IN A SAFE
PLACE FOR YOU. Uh, good idea. Thanks. [ Sheepish
chuckle ] YEAH, THANKS, MOM. I GUESS I’LL
GO OUT AND
PLAY NOW. [ ♪♪♪ ] [ Ringing of telephone ] Franklin:
I’LL GET IT. [ Ringing of telephone ] HELLO? Bear: [ On telephone ]
Franklin, I FOUND WHERE MY MOM
HID THE COOKIES. REALLY? Yeah. BUT THERE’S ONE
SMALL PROBLEM. What? Mrs. Bear:
BEAR? HAVE YOU DRIED
THE DISHES? UH-OH. SEE YOU. [ Dial tone ] BEAR? HELLO? HMM. Bear:
PSST, FRANKLIN. [ ♪♪♪ ] WHERE ARE YOU, BEAR? OVER HERE. HEY, WHY ARE
YOU HIDING
BEHIND THE… OH NO! [ Groan of effort ] AND THE WORST PART IS,
I CAN TOUCH THE COOKIES, BUT I CAN’T HAVE ONE. DON’T WORRY, BEAR. I’LL HELP YOU
GET YOUR PAW OUT. LET’S DO IT
AT YOUR HOUSE. THIS THING ISN’T
EASY TO HIDE. OKAY, COME ON. Beaver:
[ Humming ] UH-OH, SOME-
ONE’S COMING. Bear:
OH NO, WE’VE
GOT TO HIDE! [ Humming ] HUH? [ Gasping ] FRANKLIN? BEAR? OH. UH,
HI, BEAVER. HOW’S IT GOING? FINE. AND WHY ARE YOU TWO
HIDING IN THE BUSHES? HIDING? WE’RE NOT HIDING,
ARE WE, FRANKLIN? US? NO. WE’RE, UH, WE’RE
LOOKING AT THE
BABY BIRDS. BABY BIRDS! WHERE? UP… OOPS. I MEAN, UP THERE,
IN THIS TREE. I DON’T SEE THEM. KEEP LOOKING. THEY’RE
VERY SMALL. YEAH, SEE YOU
LATER, BEAVER. BABY BIRDS? [ Grunt
of effort ] PULL, FRANKLIN! [ Groan
of effort ] I AM PULLING. Beaver:
AH-HA! [ Gasping ] THERE YOU ARE. AHH! OOF! BABY BIRDS, HUH? THERE WEREN’T
ANY BIRDS
IN THAT TREE. YOU’RE RIGHT. WHAT IS THAT? BEAR’S MOM HID
SOME COOKIES
INSIDE IT SO WE’D STOP EATING THEM. AND YOU GOT YOUR
PAW STUCK TRYING
TO GET ONE OUT? [ Laughing ] OH, COME ON,
FRANKLIN, LET’S GO. NO, WAIT, WAIT. SORRY, BEAR. I SHOULDN’T
LAUGH. I GOT MY
THUMB STUCK IN A BOTTLE
OF GRAPE
FIZZY ONCE. YOU DID? I DIDN’T
KNOW THAT. MY MOM HAD TO USE
SOAP AROUND MY THUMB TO HELP SLIDE IT OUT. AND THAT WORKED? YOU DON’T SEE A BOTTLE
ON MY THUMB, DO YOU? THAT’S IT, BEAR! WE’LL PUT SOAP
ON YOUR PAW. COME ON. [ ♪♪♪ ] Franklin:
THIS IS A GREAT
IDEA, BEAVER. Beaver:
I KNOW. SEE, IF WE
USE SOAP, YOUR PAW WILL
GET REALLY
SLIPPERY. OKAY, LET’S
TRY IT NOW. [ Groan of effort ] IT’S NOT WORKING! HERE, BEAR,
MAYBE I
CAN HELP. All:
[ Grunts of effort ] MY PAW’S GOING TO BE
STUCK IN HERE FOREVER. [ Groans of effort ] PULL HARDER! All:
WA-AH-H!! OOF! [ Shattering of jar ] All:
[ Gasping ] All:
OH, NO-O-O-O! WELL, I’M NOT THINKING
ABOUT COOKIES ANY MORE. I’M THINKING WE HAVE
MORE IMPORTANT THINGS
TO THINK ABOUT. AND I’M THINKING
SOMEBODY HAD BETTER
GET THE GLUE. THERE, SAFE AND
SOUND AGAIN. AND YOU CAN’T
EVEN TELL IT
WAS BROKEN. THANKS, GUYS. I COULDN’T HAVE FIXED
IT WITHOUT YOUR HELP. IT HELPS HAVING
SIX PAWS WHEN
YOU’RE GLUING LOTS OF PIECES
TOGETHER. [ Opening of door ] HELLO, BOYS.
HELLO, BEAVER. [ Sniffing ]
AREN’T THESE LOVELY? UH-HUH. YEAH! THEY’RE
BEAUTIFUL. COULD YOU
HAND ME THAT
VASE, BEAR? [ Gasping ] UH… OH-H! YOU MIGHT AS
WELL KNOW THIS IS WHERE I
HID THE COOKIES. ACTUALLY,
I FOUND THEM
ALREADY, MOM. OH, AND YOU DIDN’T
EAT THEM ALL. I MUST SAY, I’M
PROUD OF YOU BOYS. UH, ACTUALLY WE… WE KIND OF LOST
OUR APPETITE
FOR COOKIES. YES, THAT CAN HAPPEN
WHEN YOU’VE HAD TOO
MUCH OF A GOOD THING. [ ♪♪♪ ] OH, DEAR. All:
OH, NO! MY WORD. I WONDER WHY
THAT HAPPENED? THE WRONG KIND
OF GLUE, I THINK. GEE, IT SURE
WORKS GREAT WHEN YOU’RE
STICKING PAPER
TOGETHER. YOU HAD A LITTLE
ACCIDENT, DIDN’T YOU? I JUST WANTED
ONE MORE COOKIE. THAT’S ALL. BUT THEN THE
VASE GOT STUCK
ON BEAR’S PAW. AND IT BROKE
WHEN WE TRIED
TO GET IT OFF. AND FROM NOW ON,
I’M GOING TO HAVE
JUST ONE COOKIE A DAY, LIKE I SAID I WOULD. ME TOO. [ Chuckle ]
WELL, THEN. WOULD YOU LIKE TO
SHARE TODAY’S COOKIES
WITH YOUR FRIEND? YEAH. SURE. HAVE ONE,
BEAVER. [ Munching ] EUW! All:
[ Groans of disgust ] IS SOMETHING THE MATTER? EUW! MY COOKIE TASTES
LIKE SOAP. OH, DEAR. WELL, FRANKLIN,
IT WON’T BE HARD MAKING THESE
COOKIES LAST A
LONG TIME NOW. Franklin:
YOU CAN SAY
THAT AGAIN, BEAR. All:
[ Chuckling ] [ ♪♪♪ ] Female voice: [ Narrating ]
FRANKLIN COULD
COUNT BY TWOS AND TIE HIS SHOES. HE LIKED EATING
POTATOES AND CARROTS AND SHOOFLY PIE. BUT THERE WERE
SOME FOODS THAT
FRANKLIN JUST KNEW HE WOULDN’T LIKE. Franklin:
COULD YOU PLEASE PASS
THE POTATOES, DAD? [ ♪♪♪ ] [ Chuckling ] WOULD YOU LIKE A
BIGGER PLATE, SON? I’M HUNGRY. AND I AM A GROWING
TURTLE, YOU KNOW. Harriet:
ME GROW TOO. [ Chuckling ] THERE YOU
GO, HARRIET. T’ANK YOU, FWANK’IN. HOW ABOUT SOME
CRICKET CASSEROLE FOR A GROWING
TURTLE? YES, P’EASE. Franklin:
YES, PLEASE! [ Sniffing ] IS THAT SPINACH IN THERE? OH, FRANKLIN,
YOU’LL HARDLY
NOTICE IT. [ Whine of protest ] Mr. Turtle:
IT’S DELICIOUS. AND FILLED WITH
LOTS OF VITAMINS. ON SECOND THOUGHT, MAYBE I’LL HAVE SOME
MORE CARROTS INSTEAD. YOU KNOW,
FRANKLIN, TRYING NEW
FOODS CAN BE
VERY ENJOYABLE. TRYING NEW FOODS I LIKE
MIGHT BE ENJOYABLE, BUT I KNOW I WON’T
LIKE ANYTHING WITH
SPINACH IN IT. NO. [ Sighing ] Franklin:
A PICNIC? WHEN? Beaver:
I THINK WE SHOULD
DO IT THIS WEEKEND. HOW ABOUT AT
THE PLAYGROUND? Snail:
YEAH, I LIKE
PICNICS. THAT SOUNDS LIKE
A GREAT IDEA. FIRST, I NEED TWO
VOLUNTEERS TO BE
IN CHARGE OF GAMES. OH, I’LL
DO THAT. ME TOO. ALL RIGHT. THE
JOB’S YOURS. WE CAN HAVE A
PEANUT SCRAMBLE. AND A THREE-
LEGGED RACE. AND A PEANUT SCRAMBLE! [ Chuckling ]
YOU JUST SAID
THAT, BEAR. WE CAN DO IT TWICE. I LOVE PEANUTS. [ Giggling ] I CAN’T WAIT. THIS IS GOING
TO BE FUN. BADGER AND SKUNK, I’LL NEED YOU TO
BRING SOME FOOD. Badger:
SURE. Skunk:
OKAY. I’LL BRING THE SALAD. AND, SNAIL, YOU CAN BE
IN CHARGE OF DESSERT. GREAT. I KNOW JUST WHAT
I’M GOING TO MAKE. BLUEBERRY CRUMBLE? CHOCOLATE CAKE? NOPE. GREEN ALGAE PIE. MMM. YEAH. OH. HEH-HEH. MMM. GREAT. [ ♪♪♪ ] OKAY, ARE YOU READY
FOR TEST BALLOON 10? READY, BEAR. [ Grunt of effort ] YAH-H! EUW! Badger:
[ Giggling ] NICE CATCH. [ Chuckling ]
THANKS. WE’RE TRYING
TO FIGURE OUT
HOW MUCH WATER
TO PUT IN THEM SO THEY DON’T
BREAK EVERY TIME. [ Giggle ] IT LOOKS LIKE
YOU’RE NOT HAVING
MUCH LUCK. NO, BUT WE
ARE HAVING FUN. WHAT’S IN
THE BAG? ARTICHOKES. MY MOM’S GOING TO HELP
ME MAKE A SOUFFLE OUT
OF THEM FOR THE PICNIC. ARTICHOKES? SOUFFLE? YOU’RE GOING
TO LIKE IT, IT’S REALLY GOOD. WHAT ARE
ARTICHOKES? I DON’T KNOW, BUT ANY FOOD
WITH THE WORD
“CHOKE” IN IT CAN’T BE GOOD. [ ♪♪♪ ] THREE, TWO… ONE…
BLAST OFF! [ Grunt of effort ] Beaver:
HI, GUYS. AH-H-H! Both:
UH-OH. WATCH IT, YOU GUYS! HUH! SORRY, BEAVER. YEAH, WE DIDN’T
SEE YOU COMING UNTIL IT WAS
TOO LATE. WHAT ARE YOU
GUYS DOING? PRACTICING OUR PEANUT
SCRAMBLE FOR THE PICNIC. WE’RE IN CHARGE
OF THE GAMES. REMEMBER? I REMEMBER. WHAT’S IN
THE BASKET? TWIGS. I’M COLLECTING THEM
FOR THE PICNIC. WHAT FOR? TO PUT IN THE
SALAD I’M BRINGING. WHAT ELSE? TWIGS? IN THE SALAD? YOU’VE NEVER
EATEN TWIG SALAD? WE’VE NEVER EVEN
HEARD OF IT. IT’S VERY DELICIOUS,
YOU’LL SEE. IT DOESN’T SOUND
DELICIOUS. THAT’S FOR SURE. WHO WANTS TO
EAT A BUNCH
OF STICKS? [ ♪♪♪ ] OH, NO! WHAT? NOW THERE’S WEEDS
ON THE MENU. LOOK. W-WHY ARE YOU
PICKING THOSE
WEEDS, SKUNK? BECAUSE THEY’RE
GROWING IN OUR
FLOWER BED. WHY ELSE WOULD
I PICK THEM? YOU MEAN WE AREN’T
GOING TO BE EATING
THEM AT THE PICNIC? EATING THEM? OF COURSE NOT! SO WHAT ARE YOU
BRINGING TO EAT? PIZZA. I’M GOING
TO MAKE IT WITH MY
DAD THIS AFTERNOON. PIZZA? DID YOU REALLY
SAY “PIZZA”? YES, PIZZA. OH, THANK
YOU, SKUNK. [ Giggling ] YOU’RE WELCOME. [ Chirping of birds ] [ Panting ]
I KNOW WHAT
I’M GOING TO DO. FILL UP ON PIZZA AND LEAVE ALL
THE OTHER STUFF. [ Panting ]
YEAH, WHO
WANTS TO EAT
TWIG SALAD? [ Chuckling ]
OR GREEN
ALGAE PIE? FRANKLIN, BEAR. I THOUGHT YOU TWO
WOULD HAVE GONE TO
THE PICNIC BY NOW. WE’RE GOING
PRETTY SOON. WE WANTED
TO PRACTICE FOR THE THREE-
LEGGED RACE FIRST. IT’S 12:00 O’CLOCK,
YOU KNOW. 12:00 O’CLOCK? EVERYONE ELSE
IS ALREADY GOING
TO BE THERE. YEAH, AND THEY’LL
BE EATING ALL
THE PIZZA. YOU GET THE
BAG OF PEANUTS, I’LL GET
THE WAGON. Both:
AHH! [ Moaning ] THREE LEGS ARE
NO GOOD WHEN
YOU’RE IN A HURRY. THAT’S FOR SURE! Franklin:
I DIDN’T THINK
MY SHORTCUT WAS GOING TO
BE LIKE THIS. IT’S GETTING
KIND OF MUDDY,
FRANKLIN. MAYBE WE SHOULD
TURN BACK AND
GO THE LONG WAY. BUT IF WE GO
THE LONG WAY, THE PIZZA WILL
BE ALL GONE. ALL GONE? ON SECOND THOUGHT,
WHO’S AFRAID OF
A LITTLE MUD? WAIT UP, BEAR! [ ♪♪♪ ] [ Sighing ] I WISH THERE
WAS SOMETHING
TO DO. I KNEW I
SHOULDN’T HAVE
LET THOSE GUYS BE IN CHARGE
OF THE GAMES. I WONDER WHERE
THEY COULD BE. [ Grumbling
of stomach ] [ Chuckling ]
WHOOPS! I GUESS I’M GETTING
A LITTLE HUNGRY. SO AM I. IF THEY DON’T
GET HERE SOON, WE’LL HAVE TO START
EATING WITHOUT THEM. [ ♪♪♪ ] Bear:
[ Sighing ] NEXT TIME YOU
TAKE A SHORTCUT, I’M TAKING
THE LONG CUT. [ Sighing ]
LOOK AT MY WAGON. LOOK AT YOUR WAGON? LOOK AT US! WE CAN’T GO
TO THE PICNIC
LIKE THIS. I GUESS WE’D
BETTER WASH OFF. IF WE HURRY,
THERE MIGHT STILL
BE SOME PIZZA LEFT. THE PEANUTS! MY WAGON! Bear:
[ Panting ] HURRY, FRANKLIN, THEY’RE GETTING AWAY. THAT WAS
DELICIOUS. YEAH, I’M
STUFFED! ME TOO. IF I EAT ANY MORE,
MY SHELL WILL BURST. LOOK, GUYS. HI. HI. WHAT TOOK
YOU SO LONG? YEAH, WE DIDN’T
THINK YOU
WERE COMING. I-IT’S KIND OF
A LONG STORY. WE TOOK A SHORTCUT. OOH-H-H! THAT EXPLAINS IT. YOU GUYS MUST
BE STARVED. WE SURE… ACTUALLY, WE’RE
NOT VERY HUNGRY. RIGHT, BEAR? UH, YEAH RIGHT, WE’RE NOT VERY HUNGRY. [ Grumbling of stomach ] Franklin:
BEAR! [ Giggling ] IT SOUNDS TO ME
LIKE YOU’RE HUNGRY. DO YOU WANT SOME PIZZA? WE DIDN’T
THINK THERE’D
BE ANY LEFT. THERE’S LOTS OF
EVERYTHING LEFT. MMM. THIS IS GOOD! MMM, YEAH,
IT’S DELICIOUS. REALLY? IT IS? SEE? I TOLD YOU IT WAS GOOD. YOU MEAN, YOU
GUYS DIDN’T
HAVE ANY? WHAT DID YOU
EAT INSTEAD? EVERYBODY ATE
WHAT THEY BROUGHT. [ Sighing ]
I GUESS NOBODY
WANTED MY DESSERT BECAUSE IT HAD
ALGAE IN IT. AND NO ONE ELSE
THOUGHT THEY’D
LIKE ARTICHOKES. AND NO ONE WANTED
TO EAT MY PIZZA WHEN THEY FOUND OUT
IT HAD SPINACH IN IT. EUW. SPINACH? I THOUGHT YOU
SAID YOU LIKED IT. OH YEAH, I
GUESS WE DID. MAYBE I HAVE ROOM
FOR ONE PIECE. ME TOO. I’LL JUST HAVE
A LITTLE PIECE. [ ♪♪♪ ] Franklin:
BEAR AND I WERE
AHEAD OF EVERYONE GOING REALLY FAST. GO, FWANK’IN! [ Chuckling ] BUT THEN WE TRIPPED, RIGHT BEFORE
THE FINISH LINE. BY THE TIME WE GOT UP, EVERYBODY ELSE
HAD PASSED US. OO-OH-H! RACING WITH THREE
LEGS IS A LOT
HARDER THAN TWO. [ Laughing ] IT SOUNDS LIKE
YOU HAD LOTS
OF FUN, ANYWAY. I SURE DID. AND LUNCH WAS
GREAT TOO. IS THAT SPINACH
IN THE CASSEROLE? YES, DEAR. OH, OKAY. Both:
FRANKLIN? IS THAT YOU? YES, THAT
FWANK’IN. All:
