YMMV: Oggy and the Cockroaches
  • Designated Hero/Designated Villain: Oggy and the cockroaches end up doing some nasty, sometimes even reprehensible, things to each other that it is difficult for them to retain the audience's sympathy.
  • Dub Text: In "The Kitchen Boy", Oggy grates up the cockroaches' bottoms into Olivia's pasta dish. The scene of them angrily marching off with their naked butts visible is cut in some broadcasts, leading viewers to believe that he grated them up completely.
  • Ear Worm: The theme song.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Olivia
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: The show is particularly well-remembered in Italy. It aired in contemporary with France and is currently being re-broadcasted.
  • Fridge Horror: One episode has Oggy and Jack delivering a small box which apparently contains an endless amount of spiders. Who ordered that box and why do they want it? That is, assuming they aren't an arachnologist.
  • Moe: Oggy, to an extent, mostly because of his personality. Olivia also counts.
  • Tear Jerker: "So Lonely". Basically, it's about Oggy managing to drive the cockroaches out of his house, but he eventually gets bored without their pranks. It's sad enough, but the most tearjerking moment is probably the part where he cried like a baby. It's probably better if you just see it yourself.
  • Ugly Cute: The cockroaches.
  • X Meets Y: Tom and Jerry meets Mr. Bean.
