Jack is Oggy's cousin and the deuteragonist of the series.
He is an olive green cat with a red nose and pointed ears and a big head.
Jack can be easily described as the opposite of Oggy. He's aggressive, focused, short-tempered, sometimes lazy, obnoxious, mechanic. More often than not, he's focused on getting rid of the cockroaches or doing something selfish. Jack often builds something to try and destroy the cockroaches or any other insect that roams Oggy's house and while he has had some success, more often than not his plans backfires. He also sometimes bullies Oggy, either moving him when he's in front of the TV, trying to beat Oggy in a race, or just plain going insane. He is perhaps the easiest target in the show, mainly because his rage gets him too unfocused on either getting rid of the cockroaches.
However at times, Jack can show his nicer side when he's not focused on stopping the Cockroaches or acting villainous. He tends to play the "straight-man" to Oggy and the Cockroaches' antics.
- Jack will get seasick if he goes on a cruise ship, as shown in Mayday! Mayday!.
- Jack is known to have aerophobia in The Lighthouse Keeper, yet he isn't afraid of them when flying airplanes.
- Jack is shown to be afraid of monsters in Monsters from the Mud Lagoon.
Jack tends to be Oggy's partner in many episodes. Jack almost always helps Oggy when he's in trouble whether it be from the Cockroaches or getting stranded in space. Jack can be protective towards Oggy as shown in "Flower Power" and "The Rise and the Fall". At times however, Jack's ego can get the better of him and will sometimes antagonize Oggy.
Jack does not like the Cockroaches at all. While Oggy tends to have his positive moments with the Cockroaches, Jack does not. He always goes after the Cockroaches, even if they didn't do anything wrong. This is most notable in "Mayday! Mayday!" where after overcoming his sea sickness, he immediately crushes Joey and Marky despite them doing nothing wrong. However, this might be due to the Cockroaches pulling off pranks that are often more painful and torturous than the ones Oggy usually receives.
Despite both of them being main characters of the show, they don't interact as often though their relationship seems to be positive in most episodes.
Jack and Bob's relationship varies. Most of the time, Bob is annoyed by Jack and beats him up constantly. However, at times, they act like friends, most notably in Season 4.
Monica is Jack's love interest shown throughout Season 2. While they do love each other, Jack has immense trouble in expressing his love, mainly due to the Cockroaches' antics. Their relationship is far from perfect; as shown in "Sitcom", they tend to argue a lot. Their relationship seemingly ends in "Sky Diving" where Jack has enough of her daredevil personality and eats her wedding ring, signifying that he no longer wants to marry her.
Jack is a real time bomb on four paws. He is naturally aggressive and totally impulsive. He has decided to turn Oggy, his pampered, comfy, bourgeois cousin, into a cat, a real cat! Jack is the ideal witness to all of the horrors that the roaches inflict on Oggy. And he is always there to pick up his cousin's pieces.
One thing you can say about Jack, he's not given over to self-doubt. As keyed up as an over-wound alarm clock, Jack is quick to take affront. What's more, he suffers from abnormally high blood pressure. In other words, he could explode at any moment.
