Oggy as well as the Cockroaches is a French animated comedy series manufactured by Xilam and Gaumont Film Company. Oggy and the Cockroaches

Synopsis

The show centers on Oggy, an anthropomorphic blue cat, who would choose to spend his days contentedly watching tv and eating — otherwise for that three roaches in the home: Joey, Dee Dee and Marky (named after members of the punk group Ramones). The trio appears to enjoy making Oggy’s life miserable, involving mischief including (in many instances) plundering his refrigerator to such awkward items like hijacking the train Oggy just boarded. Oggy usually finds creatures accompanying him on the end in the episode, for example crabs, clams, a horse, a really technologically advanced child, a puppy, with an octopus. However, it isn’t really always Oggy who wins.

The cartoon utilizes slapstick humour, much like its “ancestor”, Tom and Jerry, only amplifying the degree of extremities up a notch. While traditional slapstick cartoon characters prefer dropping anvils and pianos on every other, this show sometimes uses buses or submarines. Despite these, however, most gags are often accessible and enjoyable for younger viewers. Since dialogue is kept to a minimum, the humour is entirely visual.
