Oggy and the Cockroaches™ have been entertaining fans around the globe for the last twenty years, and American Mythology is bringing everyone’s favorite cat and his unwanted cockroach roommates to comics in a planned new series. Fresh off their anniversary celebration, the popular cartoon and video series will make its domestic comic book debut later this year with the publisher. All that Oggy, the clean freak cat and series’ star, wants to do is relax, eat, and watch television in his pink bean bag chair, but three nasty cockroaches, Joey, DeeDee, and Marky, have other plans for Oggy and just can’t leave him alone.
Oggy and the Cockroaches is a French animated comedy series produced by Xilam. The show first aired in the United States in 1998 and has enjoyed consistent broadcast worldwide reaching 800 Million Households in 190 countries. Available on Netflix since 2015, an expanded commitment brings Oggy Season 5 to Netflix fans. In addition, Sinclair Broadcasting’s KidsClick airs the series multiple times per week. The cartoon and characters’ popularity continue to thrive on the internet with millions of avid fans watching Oggy’s dedicated YouTube channel, boasting over 3.2 Million avid subscribers and 1.6 Billion views on the Oggy channel since first launched in 2014.
This new publishing program was brokered by Licensing Works!® on behalf of Xilam.
Rounding out the colorful cast of characters is Oggy’s neighbor, Bob, a bulldog with anger management issues; Jack, Oggy’s cousin, and the complete opposite of Oggy, as he’s short-tempered, violent, and arrogant, and Olivia, a kind, nature-loving cat who is Oggy’s love interest. Like its classic cartoon predecessors, the show is a non-verbal dialogue series heavy on laughs, featuring Oggy on the receiving end of the roaches’ constant physical jokes and pranks.
Oggy and the Cockroaches set for a Summer 2019 release.
