API Reports - Franchises with one game or less

Using the API, I have compiled a list of franchises that are listed as having only one game or no games at all. This is the first of many reports I'll be generating on a semi-regular basis for Giant Bomb and Comic Vine. I'll release the code for these reports when I'm reasonably confident that it can safely be used by others without causing world destruction.
 
Please take a look a look at the list and see if you can help out. Some simply need to have the appropriate games added, but some will need to be deleted.

That's really weird that Tetris: The Grand Master comes up because I know for a fact that there were at least three arcade installments with that name that came out way before the 360 game. Looks like I might be having a little wiki homework on my hands....

Based on some quick research, A Nightmare on Elm Street only has one game in the franchise.
 
Edit: Same with NBA Hangtime and The Great Battle.

"Pop" and "N" are a bit problematic because you can't add some of the games to the franchise since they have "+" in the title. 
 
It's a bit odd that "Aha I got it" popped up as a one game franchise since there are 2 games in there.

@Rallier: The "+" isn't really a problem in this case. N+ has an alias to aid searches, and Pop+ Solo has "Plus" in its title as a workaround for the inability to use "+" in page titles. But even if you simply type "Pop Solo", it still shows up in the search as the only result. So I've gone ahead and fixed that one.
 
The problem is that neither the N game page or the N franchise page are popular enough to show up in a search. The game page has an alias of "N-Game", but it doesn't show up because there are too many results for that search. We'll have to leave it be for now.
 
"Aha! I Got It!" is an odd one. I've taken a look at the results in the API, and both games do show up there in both JSON and XML formats. There's no sign that any of the related pages have been edited recently either. I'll probably have to take a look at my code and see if there's something wrong with the way I'm handling the results.
 
Edit: Aha! I got it! I remembered that I could take advantage of the hyphenation in the alias . Searching for "N-Game NGame" totally worked. Pop and N are both done now.

I edited the "Aha! I Got It" page yesterday to add a second game

@Not_Rage: So it's not a problem with the script then. That's good. :)
I should have checked your recent contributions, since I did see your name on the franchise page. But instead I just assumed the modification date was accurate.
