Oggy and also the Cockroaches (known as Oggy et les Cafards in French, often referred to as Oggy) is really a French animated comedy series made by Xilam and Gaumont Film Company.
The show centers on Oggy, an anthropomorphic blue cat, who'd would rather spend his days contentedly watching television and eating - if not for the three roaches in the household: Joey, Dee Dee and Marky (named after members of the punk group Ramones). The trio seems to enjoy making Oggy's life miserable, which involves mischief which range from (in most cases) plundering his refrigerator to such awkward things like hijacking the train Oggy just boarded. Oggy usually finds creatures accompanying him to the end from the episode, for example crabs, clams, a horse, a very technologically advanced child, a puppy, and an octopus. However, it isn't always Oggy who wins.
The cartoon depends on slapstick humour, much like its "ancestor", Tom and Jerry, only amplifying the amount 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.
