Oggy and the Cockroaches: The Movie (also known as Oggy et les Cafards: Le Film in French) is a 2013 French animated slapstick comedy movie that premiered on August 7, 2013 in France. The movie is based on the series Oggy and the Cockroaches.
Ever since the world was born, two forces have been locked in perpetual battle. Their struggle is so Manichean, so ferocious, so Herculean that it makes the clash between good and evil look like a game of checkers! This ancestral duel is so ancient and so merciless that it can only be, Oggy against the Cockroaches!
Millions of years ago, when the world was made there was a village with lots of cats. In the meantime, Oggy Magnon was playing a flute and a drum when suddenly, he saw fire in the hands of the village chief. He was afraid of fire due to this: When he was young and a storm struck out burning a tree, he got burned, causing him to cry. Poor him... I wish he was never afraid of fire. Where was I now? Ah, yes. When the roaches started taking the fire, Joey sneezed. No one knows why so. The Village chief was really angry on the wrong excuse he did. Jack came along to the volcano. In the meantime, the Magnon looked at a flower. It almost, I guess bit him, but DeeDee ate it all up. Even on the way, Oggy was just taking a bath in a pool until a swarm of piranhas attacked him. When the reached the walls, they chose who had to go by playing a game. Oggy "lost" against Jack, so he had to go restore the fire. But the cockroaches screw everything up, making themselves and the Magnon fall. Inside the volcano was a jungle that has a dog named Bob and his servants. The servants tied the cat up, bringing it to Bob. Olivia saved Oggy in time. Then it was no one but him... and Olivia! When she greeted him, Oggy screamed as if he were in trouble, and then he was unconscious. When he woke up, he found out that he was in Olivia's flowerhouse aka hideout from the trollish enemies. She had also put leaves to recover Oggy's feet. In that time, Olivia left him for a few minutes to something, then he fell fast asleep. In his dream he was walking for a few seconds, wondering where he could be. Then he paused. He saw Olivia for a few moments and then he woke up. The roaches were the only reason to wake him up, so he tried to hit them until Olivia returned. He threw his weapon away. The scene was switched to the two cats walking. Oggy saw a flower which once, I guess, bit him. Or something. "Don't be silly, it's harmless." Olivia must have said this to Oggy when he was afraid of the flower. When the two were looking at the beautiful sunset, it was like that they became friends. The reason I think they became friends for their lives is this, when they were looking the sunset, they entwined their tails. In the meantime, Jack had also found the two which then resulted in a major problem for these guys. The cockroaches had told Bob that they have been to Olivia's flowerhouse and they know the location. For this, they kidnapped Jack and Olivia. What, about Oggy? Well, he was out to occupy himself. When he found out that the two were missing, he cried, then started finding them. Olivia told Oggy Magnon that the only way to free them is to use fire. But he told the female cat that he was afraid of fire. So she raised the stakes. If he would save the two using fire, she would give the Magnon a kiss. Oggy starts daydreaming of what would happen if he had saved her, going back to the village. "Oh, you are such a brave person! Thank you! (Kisses him)". Of course, this is what I think. Then he accepted the deal. So Oggy Magnon found those stones and built the fire. He had saved Jack and Olivia, but she forgot to give or faked that she would give a kiss to Oggy. When the two males were escaping, the female refused to come. Then Oggy told Olivia that her flowerhouse was burned down to ashes, so she came. Back at the village, Joey was the chief for a few minutes until he sneezed again and he, Marky and Dee Dee are chased by the tribe, The chief said that how would they get fire again. Oggy had just the thing. Rocks! He used those rocks to recover the village fire. At this cost, the young Oggy Magnon became the next chief of the village.
The next story takes place in 1350, on a kingdom that was looking good as they reveal a new statue of Oggy the 1st who vanish the Cockroach king. Trumpets were being blown as the king had handed down his sword to his prince named Oggy the 2nd. but after the sword was broken by an "accident", the prince never met someone who could actually be capable of becoming a princess. The King (Prince Oggy's father) said him to ride a horse, fight a dragon, and raid the enemy's kingdom. But the prince replied negatively about those things. He said he would fail doing all that stuff. When the princess audition started, no lady became the next princess. The prince and the leader of the soldiers, Jack, came alongside with him. If they would hunt animals they would get money. But they did not know that there was someone living in this forest. Prince Oggy wanted to take the butterfly. Jack was hunting for dangerous animals for a big loot. A shadow-like appeared, disappearing the wild boar and the second animal. The third animal was almost gotten when a person kicked the soldier leader. When they were fighting it was revealed that the guardian was Olivia. She called the animals to punish Jack, but the prince had finally found a perfect match! But she was not happy because the young prince had captured the butterfly he was trying to capture. Then he let the butterfly go. She then became happy of what Oggy did. Olivia told the prince that he would be a nicer man if he had carried her to her own house. And so he did. More animals punished Jack, but Oggy liked the place! It was like a dream come true. Olivia gave the prince a piece of cloth so that he would not forget her. When he came back to the castle he told his father and his mother that he had finally found a perfect match! The King and the Queen were very happy on his son. That he had found Olivia as the match. But something was not right. Black Knight Joey (the son of the Cockroach King) and his companions, Dee Dee and Marky, had devastated an evil plan to take over the kingdom. The guardian was captured and it was up to Oggy and Jack to save her once and for all. Oggy and Jack got in and rescued the guardian. When the prince and Olivia met again, they were going round and round. Using the curtain ropes was a brilliant idea to get out, but the cockroaches exploded the bridge to the castle and outside. Then the guardian called the birds to carry them to the other side. They were almost pronounced prince and princess when Oggy had to fight Joey again. But the prince won, and they lived happily ever after, except for the evil cockroaches, who were locked up in a cage on Bob's collar.
It is December 1899 and a hot air balloon soars over London; meanwhile Master Detective Jack Holmes and his easily amazed assistant Dr. Oggy Watson are in a house. Olivia bursts in and tells the detectives that someone has stolen something from her. Oggy falls in love with Olivia so he agrees to find it. They investigate in her shop and find clues; the thieves are really the Cockroaches. Then Jack is framed by the police and thrown into the Tower of London, which is a prison at the time, due to a spy for the Cockroaches talking to him. Then Oggy and Olivia leave in an airship and crash. They return and find out the Cockroaches' plan to blow up the Big Ben while Queen Victoria gives a speech under it. They are able to deactivate the bomb, but, because of a battle between Oggy, Jack, and the Cockroaches inside Big Ben, it's faced to fall on the queen, who survives, and the Cockroaches were exploded after they escaped from the Big Ben to a blimp. Cheers for Oggy Watson and Jack Holmes until the clock was broken and almost hurt the queen. The cops chased Oggy and Jack as the 20th century has already arrived with a big bang.
