Just some of the characters you'll meet in this show.

OOglies is a little Claymation series shown as part of CBBC, the BBC's children's programming block. It's a rapid-fire series of very short skits where objects get Cartoony Eyes, come to life and (usually) get in trouble. Hilarity Ensues. No, really.

Expect lots of silent comedy/classic cartoon tropes.

Provides Examples of

  • Amusing Injuries: A good chunk of the humour is derived from Ooglies suffering all sorts of mishaps, usually being Squashed Flat.
  • Animate Inanimate Object: Nearly every single object with the signature googly eyes are animate and they all move about.
  • Anthropomorphic Food: A lot of Ooglies are edible objects such as fruit.
  • Art Initiates Life: A pencil sneaks out of its case, with the case chasing it, only for the pencil to draw something, have it become real and attack the case.
  • Banana Peel: Slippery Nana is a living version who ends up breaking objects around them.
  • Black Comedy: The "Fruit Bunch and Devious Blender" sketch involves an orange, apple, banana and pear being tricked into checking something out, only for it to be a disguised blender which promptly blends them all into a smoothie.
  • Blue/Orange Contrast: The two toothbrushes in the "Duelling Toothbrushes" sketch - the manual brush is orange and the electric one is blue.
  • Pepper Sneeze: One sketch invovles a pepper shaker spraying other Ooglies with pepper, causing them to explosively sneeze.
