Oggy and the Cockroaches (referred to as Oggy et les Cafards in French, often referred to as Oggy) is a French animated comedy series produced by Xilam and Gaumont Film Company.

Oggy and the Cockroaches
The show centers on Oggy, an anthropomorphic blue cat, who would prefer to spend his days contentedly watching television and eating - if not for that 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 such things as hijacking the train Oggy just boarded. Oggy usually finds creatures accompanying him towards the end from the episode, such as crabs, clams, a horse, a very technologically advanced child, a puppy, and an octopus. However, it's not always Oggy who wins.

The cartoon depends on slapstick humour, similar to its "ancestor", Tom and Jerry, only amplifying the level of extremities up a notch. While traditional slapstick cartoon characters prefer dropping anvils and pianos on each other, this show sometimes uses buses or submarines. Despite these, however, most gags are easily accessible and enjoyable for younger viewers. Since dialogue is kept to a minimum, the humour is entirely visual.
