Novel Furbies were also released, including an interactive Furby-style “Gizmo”, from the film Gremlins, a Furby-styke “Interactive Yoda” based on the Star Wars character, and a Furby-style “Interactive E. T. ” from the movie of the same name. Another “friend of Furby”, called “Shelby”, is similar to Furby, but looks like a clam, has vast improvements in memory, and has a different personality; it was released in 2001 and can communicate with the original Furbies and Furby Babies. They also have sensors that can sense loud sounds, can sense being upside down (they say things like “Shiver me timbers” and “Walk the plank” when left upside-down for an extended period of time), and they laugh when “tickled” (their antennae – or “tennies”, as they like to call them). They also purr when “petted”. They can be fed by sticking a finger in their mouth. Similarly, Shelbies do not have their own names, unlike the classic Furbies. Shelbies are also capable of knowing if it is talking to a Furby or another Shelby, saying phrases such as “Where’s Furby?”—though they cannot differentiate between a Furby and a Furby Baby—they just assume it is a Furby. In addition to English, Shelbies also know some Furbish words and also have their own unique language called “Shelbish”.
