Where Do Furbys Come From?

As a bit of a briefing, this post is mostly pure speculation and theorization. If you have any additional ideas or theories, feel free to send an ask or reply to this post! Now, let’s get right into it:
1998-2001 Tiger
Furbyland
These furbys as we all well know, originate from Furbyland, a collection of cloud islands trailing about our earthian skies. These furbys were capable of flight by their ears, and came down to earth to make friends and chat it up with the locals. Being that their home was in the clouds, they might have once lived in a state of constant daylight, hence their fear of the dark and general light sensitivity. They likely know the least about humans and have had the least amount of social interaction with them, considering their general lack of knowledge in human languages. Hence, why they ‘learn’ their human’s language along the way.
2005 Emototronic
Furby Island
These furbys originated from sea-based islands, also earthian, and though speculation may have assumed they were the evolution of 90′s furbys, it’s likely that they’re a subspecies of furby, considering they have their own ancient monuments and historical transcripts that don’t quite match up with the 90′s furbys’ history. These furbys were known for possessing predominantly mammal-like features. They also possibly never saw the sky as closely as their 90′s cousins did. These furbys still hold their history near and dear to their heart, and may even be a bit homesick, due to their storytelling of their old home.
2006 Funky Furby:
Based on canon from the movie, I’d say the funky furby is the result of island furbys embracing human culture and music. In one particular scene from the film, the younger island furbys start imitating the scenes and vocals they see on television, so this may be what inspired funky furbys to become so musically charged. 
2012-Boom/Crystal
Earth and Furby <CONNECT> World
AI furbys created by connect furbys, to test human interaction and to learn of the environment before the connects made the whole “take me to your leader” introduction. These furbys change drastically due to specific interaction, as a way to test the waters in regards to how humans themselves would interact to such different and unique creatures. The boom/crystal models are an upgraded system that essentially introduces humans to more beyond-basic personalities, and also hints at their own biological makeup (egg laying). These furbys already have a lot of human-centric thought put into their design, based on what the connects have learned through watching and waiting.
2016 Connect
Furby <CONNECT> World
These furbys seem to stray completely from any ties to earth, rather possessing their own world (perhaps planet?). They seem to don more alienistic qualities, having antennas on their heads that they use to communicate, sleep, and emote. They don’t seem to personally feel the triggers of their antenna, and as seen in the app, it is something they grow later after birth. Possibly non-organic tech? Still can’t fly with their ears, though considering their home it makes sense that they wouldn’t need the aid of flight. They’re likely the chubbiest furby as well, and considering their environment, (check out that ice cream cone forest behind the toilet) there’s no doubt as to why.

Something I find really fascinating about all these adaptations is the weirdly specific details that keep showing up in different movies.

One of the most specific ones is Monsieur Madeleine’s office having interior windows or even actual glass walls. And usually they’re literally looking down on the workers in the factory. I’m sure this is supposed to be ~*~Symbolic~*~ somehow but I have no idea what they’re actually trying to say. Or maybe they all just saw the 1935 movie doing it and liked how it looked?

I don’t know if this started with the ‘35 film (aka Red Scare Les Mis) but that’s the earliest example I know and in that one it was actually used for visual juxtaposition. The others are 1978, 1998 and 2012. All of these are English language movies.

North Carolina needed 6,500 farm workers. Only 7 Americans stuck it out.
When you have an agricultural economy and no immigrants, getting business done gets tough.

The NCGA is the nation’s largest user of the H-2A guest worker program, which is designed with agricultural workers in mind. Under that program’s regulations, Clemens explains, NCGA “must submit an application to the US Department of Labor proving that it has actively recruited US natives and native workers will not take NCGA jobs.”

That data is interesting, because it describes the labor market before any immigrant workers are recruited. That, as Clemens says, “allows us to assess the willingness of native workers to take farm jobs before they can even be offered to foreign workers, meaning that this study does not miss any impact caused by people who self-select out of an area or occupation because of competition with foreign workers.”

That willingness, he finds, is basically nonexistent. Every year from 1998 to 2012, at least 130,000 North Carolinians were unemployed. Of those, the number who asked to be referred to NCGA was never above 268 (and that number was only reached in 2011, when 489,095 North Carolinians were unemployed). The share of unemployed asking for referrals never breached 0.09 percent.

When native unemployed people are referred to NCGA, they’re almost without exception hired; between 1998 and 2011, 97 percent of referred applicants were hired. But they don’t tend to last. In 2011, 245 people were hired out of 268 referred, but only 163 (66.5 percent) of the hired applicants actually showed up to the first day of work. Worse, only seven lasted to the end of the growing season.
