"Oggy and the Cockroaches" is a French animated series which centres on Oggy, a content, blue cat, who would prefer to spend his days watching television and eating - if not for the three roaches in his household: Joey, Dee Dee and Marky (named after members of the punk group Ramones). The trio seems to enjoy making Oggy's life miserable, which involves mischief ranging from (in most cases) plundering his refrigerator to such awkward things like hijacking the train Oggy just boarded. Oggy usually finds creatures accompanying him to the end of the episode, such as crabs, clams, a horse, a very technologically advanced child, a puppy, and an octopus. However, it's not always Oggy who wins... According to executive producer Marc du Pontavice and France Info, the character of Oggy was named after punk rock musician Iggy Pop and the rock album "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars". The series is produced by Xilam and Gaumont Film Company.

Nickelodeon channels across Northern Europe has also recently started to show "Oggy and the Cockroaches" as their Autumn/Winter 2014 programming highlights!
