Based on Brenda Clark and Paulette Bourgeois’ book series Franklin the Turtle, Franklin and Friends is Nelvana Enterprises’ latest gift to the animated world. The toon stars Franklin the Turtle, a young little reptile who can famously count by twos and tie his shoes. He lives life not unlike many of us; he goes to school, hangs out with his friends, and heads out on adventures wherever possible – imaginary or otherwise! Nelvana’s latest toon, co-produced by Alphanim, Lux Animation, Nelvana Limited, Neurohouse, Reader’s Digest for Young Families, TF1, and PolyGram Television, is all part of Franklin’s 25th anniversary, which kicks off next year. Hopefully, there’s some shoofly pie in it for him!
