Oggy is the main protagonist and one of the titular characters of the series.

Personality

Oggy is a diplomatic, sometimes lazy and an easy-natured cat who is the constant victim of the cockroaches. Of all of his life, he spends his life chasing and catching the cockroaches, but somehow developed a certain love/hate relationship with them and has also learnt that without the cockroaches, his life would be very boring.

He also displays a love for gardening and eating food. Oggy seems to have a calm-demeanor but when provoked by the cockroaches or someone else, he would go and attack them. He sometimes cross-dresses, because in one episode, the cockroaches steal his laundry bag and leaving trail of clothes and when he picks the clothes, he became embarrassed because there is a brassiere visible among the boxers and socks.

Appearance

Oggy has a blue overweight body, a red jellybean-like nose which can be removable at times, a pink tongue, a grey tummy with a squiggly belly-button, whiskers on three yellow circles, black pointy ears, and white feet.

Weaknesses

  • In several episodes, Oggy has been shown to have four prime phobias: hydrophobia, murophobia, acrophobia and aviophobia.
  • He can get fooled easily by the cockroaches.

Relationships

Jack

Jack is Oggy's cousin. Oggy and Jack almost act like life partners to each other. Jack almost always decides to help Oggy when he is in trouble, whether it be the Cockroaches, getting launched to space or getting trapped in the internet. However their relationship isn't perfect. At times, Jack will act more villainous and overall insane, this will always lead to Oggy trying to stop him from going any further.

Olivia

The new girl next door neighbor. He falls in love with Olivia. in the episode "Olivia", he saved Olivia's life, making Jack and Bob jealous of him. She is a white cat. He is mostly nervous when he is with her, while Olivia doesn't feel nervous about the two liking each other and have feelings for each other. But, after a few episodes in Season 4, he doesn't seem to feel as nervous as before. In "Oggy is Getting Married", both Oggy and Olivia are married together. In almost every episode where they appear together, she kisses him on the cheek. Occasionally, they end up kissing each other on the lips.

Cockroaches

Oggy holds an intense grudge against Dee Dee, Marky, and Joey, which goes back to even when he was a baby (revealed in the episode "It's a Small World"). He loses and falls victim to the cockroaches in many episodes, but in some other episodes he reigns victorious as he defeats them. Occasionally, however, Oggy is forced to work together with the cockroaches, especially when Jack is played out as the antagonist, like in the episodes "The Dictator" and "Life's A Beach". Oggy will sometimes have sympathy towards the Cockroaches. In "Oggy and the Babies" he pleads to Jack to spare their lives and in "Lost in Space" he decides to rescue the Cockroaches from suffocating in space despite being a constant nuisance to him.

Joey 

Oggy and Joey are usually enemies. Oggy seems to target Joey much more often than Dee Dee and Marky mainly due to him knowing that Joey is the most cunning and hardest Cockroach to stop. At times however, they form a villainous friendship when they both end up in trouble. Episodes like "Mission to Earth", "Virtual Voyage" and "Journey to the Center of the Earth" show them having to work together to save each other. In "Ugly, Dirty and Good" when Joey regresses back into a child, Oggy takes him under his care and is genuinely distraught when they go back to being enemies after finally he recovers. Glimmers of their positive relationship still stands however, in "For Real!" they hug after turning back into their real selves and in "Inspector Dee Dee", he is more than happy to give back Oggy's swatter after it was stolen by an octopus. Oggy and Joey's relationship is the most prominentley shown aswell as the most positive one out of the 3 Cockroaches.

Bob

The next door neighbor with anger management issues. He is an enemy of Oggy in many episodes. Everytime Oggy destroys something that Bob owns he is almost always gets beaten/punched/kicked by Bob. However, on occasion, Bob will treat Oggy more like a friend. In "To Serve and Protect" Bob acts more friendly and even has respect to Oggy once he thinks that he'd make a good police officer. In "Steamed Out!" Bob actively wants to hang out with Oggy and Jack and tries to help them lose weight.

Monica

Monica is the twin sister of Oggy. They have a relatively nice relationship.

Terra

The former love interest who only appeared in two episodes (Jealousy and The Joker Joked). She and Oggy used to date, however in "Jealousy" she falls in love with Marky, this causes Oggy to become jealous and eventually kicks her out of his house after cheating on him.

Official Descriptions

Xilam

Oggy is constantly victim to the roaches and through them, also prey to Bob the dog. As for Jack's "save the day" strategies, they generally turn against Oggy. Oggy is a clean freak and his house has to be spick and span. Roaches in his clean, neat home are the signs of a life's failure. These horrible, filthy, little vermin are always making him go against his nature, which is relaxed, lazy. All he wants to do is watch his pathetic TV shows, sprawled in his pink bean bag chair...

Cartoon Network

Oggy is a big blue easy-going Tom… well, that's how he'd describe himself. A sensitive cat with a kind heart: a "good guy". Only one thing this cat is after: a quiet snooze, curled up on his pink cushion in front of his favourite mind-numbing TV programs. He adores game shows, fantasising about the day he'll win a self-cleaning oven, or 12 gear vacuum cleaner on "The Wheel of Fortune"… Oggy, an Ideal Home fan, is a natty housekeeper.

Disney Channel Asia

Protagonist of the show. He usually spends his time either watching TV or doing housework - when not chasing roaches. Despite the constant mayhem caused by the cockroaches, Oggy has developed a sort of love-hate relationship with them. Without the cockroaches, nothing fun or interesting ever happens in his life.

Nickelodeon

Oggy is a lazy cat who loves the simple life, but with three prankster cockroaches as roommates, his life is anything but simple. When he’s not cleaning up after Joey, Marky and Dee Dee, Oggy can usually be found crushing on his neighbor, Olivia!
