i hated my furby when i got it in 1998. it was a present from my uncle.
it wouldn't shut up so i put it in the closet to make it sleep. one time i was alone in my quiet room and i hear "aaah! ahhh!" and freaked out.
then when i smelled something burning from the furby, i removed the batteries and that was the end of that. :T

Hah, yeah, my furby made really odd noises. :<
I got one when they were first released and I thought it was pretty lame. :\

A while back on ebay someone was selling a furby that they had purposefully made sound odd. It was supposed to be a musical instrument. Hehe.

Mine gets the smoke smell sometimes coming from the battery compartment. It occurred when I played for it over an hour, thats when I knew I used it too long and put it to bed after so it would cool down.

Even though you said old furbies only, mine does weird things also. My one furby that has white fur and PINK eyes, when he wiggles, he makes this strange squeaking noise. It sounds like a screeching car.

Mine smelled of smoke was buzzing and kept sneezing, but i don't really have those problems anymore 'cause the buzzing was so loud and annoying i threw it in our pool. A while after i threw my furby in the pool it disapeared. I had forgotten about it so i haven't seen it for 8 months...

I have two different types...

White and differnt ToyRUs Jeffory-color 1998.

They like Screeching when batteries are inside them.... They like saying Me Wah.... Screeeech................ etc. At that point I remove the batteries. Screeches of love....

Otherwise I may have a had freezing a bit... But It's only the mouth. Not bad....

If you otherwise had one speak spanish... Um I bet you did the combo to make it Spanish..... hehehe. I did it Once.... Then It got fixed with a holding of the reset.... I have no idea how I did it either.... But it was.... :furawatchi:
