In WDC 201 Gyro uses a hammer to stimulate his thinking. When his
Little Helper tries to do the same, he smashes his light bulb. In the
next panel he runs to a board where different bulbs are lying and
takes one of them - unfortunately the biggest one, so that he can
barely walk anymore.

In "The Duck who never was" Gyro shows Donald his helper, who "got
broken years ago" and looks as if his bulb burned out.

So it seems to differ from story to story if Little Helper's bulb is
essential to life.
