From the makers, and broadcasters of "Space Goofs" (1997), comes the tale of an otherwise contented cat named Oggy, who faces constant harassment by a group of annoying cockroaches. Relying on no dialogue whatsoever, this half-season cartoon operated with semi-silent humor, reminiscent of the original Tom & Jerry cartoons, and the many incarnations of "The Pink Panther Show"Written by

To me "Oggy" is the best thing that happened since "Tom and Jerry" (the old ones).
German TV is now showing "Oggy" at the children's hour, which to me is quite strange as I think the often cruel, violent as well as anarchistic and also surrealistic humour is not exactly child-conform. To really enjoy the show you should accept its sheer nonsense world where natural laws no longer exert their power and everything is possible.
You should also love the extremely kitsch coloured conformistic suburban dwelling of Oggy and his fellows with its highly imaginative wall-papers and pictures on the walls. And hospitals with super-sized syringes on their roofs serving as "guide-signs" and never ending staircases and a tour into outer space every now and then and and and... ....maybe it's no mistake either to like a certain New York based punk-band with DeeDee and Joey being two of the cockroaches.
I am of course very fond of Oggy and his antagonists, they are so human. Another thing I enjoy is that the whole of them are so malicious and still, from time to time, every one of them gets his.
So my hope is that this show will run on for ever.
