Read full description of the books Franklin's Christmas Gift:I hate to admit it, since it goes against everything I stand for as a book themed superhero, but I actually prefer the episode—which you can view here:
—as the episode gave the viewer two scenes that the book did not.
(1) When Beaver brags (big shocker there) that she already knows all the answers in the Q&A book she's donating to the toy drive, Franklin responds with a mildly sarcastic: "Of course," which causes Goose to laugh.
(2) When Franklin reveals to his mom that he's giving away his treasured puppets because Bear gave away his sled, his mom points out that it was easy for Bear to part with it, because he got too big for it, leaving Franklin to conclude that it's probably because of all the cookies he eats (Franklin, did you just body shame Bear?).
There's also a couple of differences, including: in the book, Bear did not give away his sled, and instead gave a puzzle that he only worked once, while Goose was the one to give this gift in the episode; Franklin never considers giving away his puppets in the book; Franklin's aunt does not appear in the episode (guess the budget wouldn't allow for another voice actor), though she is the one to send him the gift of a puppet theatre; since his aunt did not appear in the episode, Franklin did not give her the gift of a play he wrote, though he does put on a short performance (not a good one, mind you) with his new puppet theatre, with his parents as the audience.
