Default Question to experts: Manufacturer of 23 Animal Figures bags from cca 1980...

I receive these two sets as little child in cca 1980, origin of these figures is Hong Kong (as described in bottom part of every figure). Figures were distributed in plastic bags with yellow label, every bag contained 23 items. Please can anybody identify manufactures of these two sets of animal figures? I am interested of another possible releases, links on web, etc.

Default Cheap copies

As said above, these are copies of other brands, most of them Britains, the grey lambs I think are copied from Crescent. They came and still comes in thousands of combinations and worse sizes.
The only original one, I haven't seen before are the longhorn cattle. But it could be a copy from some american firm, Marx maybe.
If you consider collect them ther's one advantage - they are cheap.

All the best!
