Oggy is a blue cat with a friend called Jack and lives with three pesky cockroaches. Jack hates the roaches and tries without success to get rid of them, but Oggy is a bit of a softy and misses them whenever their not causing complete chaos for him.
Oggy and The Cockroaches is a cartoon we found on Pop a free sat channel and we have been hooked on it ever since. The cartoon is entertaining for all ages. Poor Oggy has to fight for his food, even his doll when joey, one of the cockroaches falls in love with it. There is such chaos and mayhem that you just can't help but laugh; when the cats are skinned, sliced, blown up, catapulted into space, burnt to a crisp and sent on terrifying trips at the hands of those pesky roaches. One of our favourite episodes includes poor Oggy being pumped up while asleep only to wake believing he is pregnant. He spends the episode knitting little suits, eating super foods and dreaming of being a parent, only to be popped by jack to the sound of the cockroaches trademark laughter. The characters are brilliant the stories are hilarious especially if you were a fan of the old cartoons (i still love roadrunner and whacky Races- fantastic).
Honestly, I mean it. I see shit like Sanjay and Craig getting worse and worse every passing day, and Breadwinners getting even worse every passing hour. I know this isn't a "nickelodeon official" nicktoon or whatever, but either way it is WELCOME.
It's characters are nice, and the jokes pretty much hit bulls-eyes. Not only that, but it doesn't try to be "overly hip" or "super-disgusting" like I see every other damn Cartoon doing on Nick these days. It uses slap-stick that actually seems fresh in a way, and gives you a classic feel of "Tom and Jerry" in a sense
Not only that, but the animation is just great, not choppy or even non-expressive. The character designs are cute and appealing, the backgrounds are nicely detailed. It give me a good feeling and whatnot.
Glad I'm finally seeing some effort, hope for even better cartoons in the future.
This show may be a turning point for Nickelodeon, it does have potential. Although I sort of like this show for being quite nostalgic to my childhood with its slapstick humor, which I simply adore, I kind of feel this show is good for watching if there was nothing better to watch on TV. Oh, and if you're wondering why I'm posting this early in the morning on a school day, it's because I'm on spring break. This show can be kind of boring at times, but it still entertains you enough to not change the channel. Overall, this show isn't too bad, but it's still a pretty decent show compared to all of the other garbage that Nick airs. AlexMan, if you're reading this, I respect your opinion.
Plot: Oggy, is a cat that always being bullied by 3 cockroaches, Joey, Marky, and Dee-Dee. They always cause problems and feuds around him. And his cousin Jack, always comes to his home to hang on, is also bullied by the trio of cockroaches. Everyday they war around the house for almost anything, food, fridge, television, home, and sometimes money.
Characters: They don't speak, and they have flaws. Minor flaws. They change their personality most of the times in every episode. Voice acting is not an issue, because their dialogues are just squealing and laughing around.
Humor: Slapstick humor, sometimes really cliche and can be very boring sometimes. But the quirky events that shows up in here, is fantastic.
Art: Simplistic, but needs a little improvement. There are some lines that goes wrongly in those characters. The human characters are really designed to be messy, so no issues in the human characters. Animation is above average.
Overall: 7. Needs the improvements that I said above. Anyways it's good to watch.
HOW did this show get a 7.9 from IMDb? This show is PATHETIC! I watched it once about a month ago, and it was STUPID! It's basically Tom and Jerry mixed with Rabbids Invasion. And guess what? It's got the same writers as Rabbids Invasion! Just so you guys know, I've been on a three month hitatus since I joined TheTopTens. Actually I joined it last year (on June 14), but I've REALLY been active on it lately. But yeah, this show, this STUPID SHOW, needs to go. Nick just doesn't get it. They keep creating crappy shows that people don't like, then you make the same mistakes in their crappy shows and they think "maybe people will like it this time". WELL WE DON'T. They're literally defining insanity here. They make the EXACT SAME kinds of shows and expect people to like it EACH AND EVERY TIME. Like seriously. And BTW, my TopTens account is called Disney1994.
Not creative. A low-quality Tom and Jerry rip-off that fails. Too extreme for kids, violence is mainly (always) the plot. Still don't know why people would watch this horrid show. There are better ones than this trash. For example, Jimmy Rottweiler and the Band of Dogs.
