The show revolves around the titular characters: Oggy, and the cockroaches Joey, Marky, and Dee Dee. When the show started airing in 1998, it was successful in France and was eventually broadcast worldwide.
All three cockroaches are voiced by Hugues LeBars. However, Dee Dee was given a deep-toned voice provided by Michel Elias after eating one of the special biscuits in the second series episode, Chatter Box.
Each being named after members of the punk rock the Ramones, the cockroaches are three brothers comprising of Joey, the oldest, being 21 years old, Marky, the middle child, and Dee Dee, the youngest of the three, whose ages are unknown. They live in the air condition vent of Oggy's house which they to travel to different rooms. They enjoy instigating trouble where ever they go. They have even hijacked vehicles for joyrides, such as a dump truck, train, firetruck, and planes ("Rock 'n Roll Altitude", "Panic in the Air", and "First Flight"). They additionally commit crimes willfully on a near-daily basis showing no remorse whatsoever. Like many villains, the cockroaches are sadistic, up to the point they take pleasure from seeing people suffer, whether it be physically or emotionally, examples of this are when Oggy gets beaten up by Bob, the bully of the show, or when the former tears up. In the backstory from the episodes "It's a small world", shows that they have been bullying Oggy since he was a baby, also, weirdly enough, they looked older than him.
Joey is a selfish, vicious and highly sadistic individual. On a few cases, he has even sent at least one of his fellow roaches into action, so he would not have to go himself (e.g., "Mouseagator" and "Mouse Attack"). He is quite devious; possessing no qualms toward cheating ("Sports Fans") and using manipulation (e.g., the aforementioned "Fake News" which also shows that he knows how to edit videos). In addition, there is practically nothing he will not do to get his way. A good example of this is in "Don't Rock the Cradle" and "Oggy the Babysitter" when he attempted to kidnap a baby for ransom, also displaying his avarice. He is additionally revengeful and bad-tempered, sometimes seeking vengeance on Oggy out of anger merely for rubbing him the wrong way. In the cartoon's more recent seasons, Joey is sometimes shown to act harsher toward Dee Dee and Marky. He has even physically harmed them, particularly when they defy or irritate him. Joey is additionally said to metaphorically view things in black-and-white. Despite these traits, according to some official profiles, he would produce an incredibly emotive speech concerning the ultimate fate of all cockroaches if he could talk. It is also noted to canvass how victimized cockroaches will stand up and be emancipated. His end goal is said to hold sway over Oggy's household for himself and "his people."
Like all cockroaches, Joey possesses a big appetite and incredibly low standards of cleanliness, as he is stated to find Oggy's house "much too clean" and is shown to be prone to making messes. He appears to be aware of the fact that he is in a cartoon, as he occasionally looks so directly at the watcher(s). In fact, he even provided a transition scene in "Beachcombers" and "Beach Havoc".
For all his flaws, Joey is not without sentiment. While he can be nasty to Dee Dee and Marky, he is shown to feel affection for them. He helped Marky without reluctance in "Marky's Tournament" and mourned when Dee Dee "died" in "The Fugitive", "Globulopolis", and "Inside Oggy", among other examples. In addition, despite being stated to hate Oggy, Joey often consorts with the cat more than his fellow cockroaches. For instance, after suffering a head injury in "Ugly, Dirty, and Good", he began believing Oggy was his father and genuinely enjoyed spending father-son activities with him. (In this state, his mentality was also reduced to that of a child's, and he did not remember Marky and Dee Dee.) Furthermore, despite eventually reverting to his old self, Joey was seen staring at Oggy with an affectionate look on his face. Once he realized that Dee Dee and Marky were watching him, he stopped staring at the cat and slapped the two in annoyance. Joey also saved Oggy from plunging to his death in "Journey to the Center of the Earth" and actually teared up after he left in "Moved Out". 2b1af7f3a8
