Oggy and the Cockroaches: The Movie (also known as Oggy et les Cafards: Le Film in French) is a 2013 French animated anthology comedy film directed and written by Olivier Jean-Marie, that premiered in France on August 7, 2013. The movie is based on the series Oggy and the Cockroaches and also has no dialogue, like the series.
When the Earth is made, single-cell organisms have been formed by matter. A blue shape was made from small pieces. It has floated in the water and comes up against three small forms of cockroach. The blue form pursues them and they evolve into animals and rise towards the ocean. Now the center has started.
Millions of years ago, when the world was made there was a village with many 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. Back to the story, the roaches started taking the fire, but Joey sneezed. The Village chief thought Oggy was the culprit and was really angry at him. Jack came along to the volcano. In the meantime, Magnon looked at a flower. It almost 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 they 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 messed 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 let out a cry 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, her 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. He dreamt about 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 bit him. Olivia told Oggy it was harmless when he was afraid of the flower. When the two were looking at the beautiful sunset, making it evident they both fell in love with each other, as 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. Meanwhile, Oggy 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, he would be the hero of her life. Oggy starts daydreaming of what would happen if he had saved her and he accepted the deal, going back to the village . So Oggy Magnon found those stones and built the fire. He had saved Jack and Olivia. 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 decided to come with them. 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: the rocks. He used them to recover the village's fire. At this cost, the young Oggy Magnon became the next chief of the village.
The next story takes place in 1350, in a good-looking kingdom as they reveal a new statue of Oggy I who had defeated the Cockroach king. Trumpets were being blown as the king was handing his sword down to his prince named Oggy II. 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) requested 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 commander in chief, 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 Jack. 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. Olivia gave the prince a piece of cloth so 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. Olivia was captured and it was up to Oggy and Jack to save her once and for all. Oggy and Jack got in and rescued Olivia. 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.
