* The Gummi Bears in ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGummiBears'' where known (and eventually persecuted) for their marvels in engineering in a medieval setting. Although Gruffy himself seems to be very proficient as an engineer his abilities do not match those of the Old Gummis who made, among other things; an intercontinental communication device and solar-fueled death ray, a complex underground ultra-fast railway system and flying airships and all of that using medieval technology.
* Handy Smurf in ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'' using the technology available in the Middle Ages and with no magic involved is capable of doing tractors, crawlers, cranes, harvest machinery and a robot with artificial intelligence, just to mention the more impressive.
