Oggy is really a cat, he’s light blue body, green eyes, grey tummy and white feet. Oggy usually spends his time either watching television or doing housework — when not chasing the cockroaches. Regardless of the constant mayhem brought on by the cockroaches, Oggy has developed a sort of love-hate relationship with them, having lived with them for some time. Whenever he finds himself alone in his house, he’ll eventually begin to miss the cockroaches along with their pranks (as seen in the episode Priceless Roaches). Oggy’s house appears bigger on the inside, mainly featured in the roller coaster-like staircase scenes. Oggy originates to realize that without the cockroaches, nothing fun or interesting ever occur in his life. According to executive producer Marc du Pontavice and France Info, the smoothness of Oggy was named after punk rock musician Iggy Pop and also the rock album An upswing and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.In early episodes, Oggy, like his predecessor Tom in Tom and Jerry, was the primary punching bag within the series. However, in additional recent episodes, Oggy has been portrayed as heroic, often triumphing within the cockroaches regardless of the beatings he adopts from their store and Bob. Notable other accomplishments include winning the Formula 1, placing first in a marathon, and eventually winning over his girlfriend Olivia.
The Cockroaches are the three cockroach brothers who antagonize other characters, mainly Oggy and Jack. The cockroaches love pranking them a lot, when the cats were to leave, they’d miss them (as observed in the episode Leaving).


Joey (born 15 June 1991) is really a purple-pink body, purple-blue head roach with a pink eye and yellow eye (pink right eye and yellow left eye, originally red), and also the older brother. Even though he’s the smallest roach in the group, most of the time he’s the most intelligent, always to be the brain in the plans, but may also be made to go solo, because his brothers often think his plans are stupid. He loves money, but his efforts always fall short, usually ending with him getting swatted or beaten up.

Marky is really a suave heartbreaking, silvery-grey body, green head roach with pink eyes (originally red, but returned within the ending of the episode Teleportation where he’s stuck in the ice cubes); he is the tallest and middle brother of the three roaches and frequently doesn’t actually worry about exactly what the two others are doing. While he originally accustomed to love causing mischief just like his brothers, he’s turned out to be more laid-back in later episodes, though he still enjoys hanging out with Joey and Dee Dee and causing general mayhem like he’s always done. His hobbies are dating puppets and reading books. Also, he has bad breath, as revealed within the episode ‘It’s A little World’ Season 1.

Dee Dee is the ever-hungry cockroach and youngest from the three. He has a blue body, orange head and green eyes. His appetite sometimes reaches insane proportions, often inducing the consumption of larger animals or any other things that would certainly be inedible (such as hyenas once and, because of the results of a poisonous mushroom in another case, a bug. Other instances include the fish on the wallpaper Oggy’s Clone along with a clownfish Diving). He’s recognized to like opera. Sometimes it is shown that his feet are so foul-smelling, the juice they produce is toxic and melt objects like the Xenomorphs from the Alien franchise whether they have acid for blood.

Jack is Oggy’s cousin. He has a green body, yellow eyes, pale pink tummy and white feet, in the show. He’s Oggy’s cousin so the opposite of Oggy. Jack is short-tempered, violent, arrogant — a perfect target for the roaches to annoy. He often finds himself building huge machinery, for example roach-catching contraptions, most of the time leading to them backfiring. He’s also very thinking about chemistry (that’s, the more explosive parts of it). Jack often sleeps at Oggy’s house. At times, he bullies Oggy. Jack appears to be the best character within the show. He likes to showcase, challenge the roaches and date girls — mainly Oggy’s sister Monica. He is sometimes seen trying to propose to Monica, however the cockroaches’ pranks always make him stop short. In a single episode, they seem to possess a baby together and get Oggy to babysit the youngster. Jack also offers a morbid fear of heights, as shown in several episodes like ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’ Season 3. However, in ‘The Rise & The Fall’ Season 1 it is Oggy who has a anxiety about heights instead of Jack.

Bob is really a fierce brown bulldog and Oggy’s neighbour. He’s severe anger management issues. A running gag within the show has Oggy or Jack doing something that accidentally crushes Bob or shaves his fur or destroys his house, with Bob then pummeling Oggy or Jack off-screen. He doesn’t always pummel Oggy, as seen in Baby Boum and Police Academy. He’s some kind of friendship with Jack, as notably observed in Olivia. He is recognized to like boxing.

Olivia is really a white cat and Oggy’s new neighbour and new love interest. She loves nature, even Oggy’s enemies Joey, Marky and Dee Dee, leading to Oggy acting nice to them each time she’s around. She always stops working when someone hurts any part of nature. She also cares a great deal about her looks; within the episode Olivia’s Pimple when she sees a pimple on her behalf face, she will not leave her house. Within the series last episode ‘Oggy Is Getting Married Featuring Olivia’, Olivia and Oggy get married after a visit to Venice.
