Okay, enough of the serious stuff that I have been writing on in the last few posts. Let's talk about our animated heroes and their antics.
The first story is set in the pre-historic days, when Oggy and the roaches evolved through single celled organisms. The battle between good and evil; between black and white - although sometimes it is just between grey and grey - begins very early, even when our heroes are in a single celled state! Oggy's uncle, the fireman, orders Oggy to go to the volcano to fetch a pail of... well, fire.
Jack goes along with him, and so do the roaches, just to trouble him and steal his fire. However, they end up falling inside the volcano, and find that there is another world there. The hostile region is ruled by that troubled dog, Bob. His henchmen try to capture the cat brothers to eat them, but they are helped by Olivia, who also teaches them to make fire by rubbing stones. It is a happy ending when the fire bearing brothers make it back to their domain with Olivia.
The second story is about Oggy trying to rescue the princess Olivia from a castle where she is held captive by the roaches. But, our blue French feline is a bit of a sissy this time! He is into embroidery, much to the utter disdain of his father, the king, who wants him to be a brave warrior! Nevertheless, helped by the animals who are with Olivia - just as they were with Cinderella and Snow White - and his brother, Jack, Oggy manages to rescue the princess.
In the final story, we are in the future. This means it is Star Wars time, and Bob, who has an ambition of world domination, deploys the roaches to wreak havoc. Our French jedi draw out their neon laser swords, while Oggy goes for the... what else, the laser roach swatter!
