1952-> Gyro Gearloose Walking Inventions – Carl Barks (American)

"Gyro Gearloose" walking inventions featured here appeared in comics from 1967 owards, I believe.

From Wiki: Gyro Gearloose is a fictional character, an anthropomorphic chicken created by Carl Barks for The Walt Disney Company. He is part of the Scrooge McDuck universe, appearing in comic book stories as a friend of Donald Duck, Scrooge and anyone who is associated with them. He was also a frequent star of the animated DuckTales. He first appeared in the Carl Barks comic Gladstone's Terrible Secret (Walt Disney's Comics and Stories #140), May 1952.


 "The Engineer in Full Gear".

In Germany there was an exhibition where models of Gyro Gearloose's inventions were created.  Here's a selected extract from the catalogue that was produced.

Artificial rooster, chicken, cow, donkey and horse.
