Oggy

The title character. He's a lazy fat cat who is usually chasing around to get rid of the mischievous cockroach trio.
  • Adorkable: His enjoyment for toys and woobieness makes him this.
  • Ambiguously Bi: There were episodes where Oggy showed attraction to women, and others were he clearly ogled men. In one episode he and Jack went to eat on a classy restaurant, and Oggy was carrying a purse. Season 4 averts this by having Olivia his only romantic interest.
  • Berserk Button: Olivia being threatened or hurt is a big one for him.
  • Big Eater: Oggy is usually eating something in most of time and his fridge is filled with tons of food.
  • Butt Monkey: Overall he is the biggest in this cartoon. In almost every episode he suffers some kind of misfortune, like being tricked by the cockroaches and being beaten by Bob.
  • Can't Stand Them, Can't Live Without Them: His relationship with the cockroaches. He hates they but can't live without them. Becomes a plot point in "So Lonely".
  • Cats Are Mean: Rarely. He is only mean when he is the villain of the episode.
  • CloudCuckoolander: Sometimes.
  • Enemy Mine: Oggy allied with the cockroaches in some episodes to screw enemies in common.
  • Fat Cat: Duh.
  • Godzilla Threshold: If you are a major Jerkass to the point of greed, chances are he will get the cockroaches to help him. Jack and Bob learned this the hard way.
  • Half-Identical Twins: With his twin sister Monica.
  • Heroic B.S.O.D.: Briefly in “Black and White” when Oggy lost his colors due an accident with the washer.
  • Inelegant Blubbering: Oggy often cries like a baby. Hysterical and very loudly.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He is the least “jerk” and the most “heart of gold” in comparison with Jack and the cockroaches. Generally he only reacts in response for cockroaches' provocations.
  • Lazy Bum: Most of time Oggy is sitting in front of TV.
  • Leitmotif: The melody of the show's opening theme is almost always used for him.
  • Man Child: This is an obvious case in "Soldier for a Day", where his room is shown to be full of children's toys.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: He triumphs over the Cockroaches much more often in Season Four.

Jack

  • Butt Monkey: Not frequently like Oggy, but when something happen to him it's usually nasty.
  • Cats Are Mean: Most of time, especially towards the cockroaches.
  • Cool Car: It's a monster truck!
  • Crazy-Prepared: At times. He has a lot of stuff with him to be prepared.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: He makes a lot of machines. Though by later seasons, this appears to have dropped.
  • Jerkass: Most of time. He always pursue the cockroaches even if he hadn't a reason for it and sometimes he uses Oggy and his properties for his own profit.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Several episodes show that Jack truly does care about Oggy's well being. Most of the time..
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Many of his plans to get advantage backfires to him. A notable example is in “Life's A Beach” when Jack uses Oggy's house and pool for his business without asking him permission for that and ends the day being beaten by his customers and got stuck by several lightnings.
