    The Cockroaches (Joey, Marky, and Dee Dee) are three of the main characters as well as the main antagonists of the French animated series Oggy and the Cockroaches. They are a trio of cockroaches who annoy and pick on Oggy (a blue cat), and he has to deal with their various antics.

    Sadly, they were flanderized during season 5.

    Intentional Bad Qualities

    1. The main problems with their flanderizations are that their new personalities go against the ones which were already established and that they got either replaced by clichéd stereotypes that make them blander, like Dee Dee becoming more of a fat idiot than before, or that their traits became exaggerated, like Marky and Joey's cowardice being taken up to eleven.
    2. Something that made them unique from one another was the amount of detail in their expressions, movements, and reactions, but now each one of the trio act exactly the same, and none of the three stand out despite their looks and their personalities, even if it's not essentially the writers' fault for this, but the drastic change of animation style.
    3. Their laughs started to become much more obnoxious and ear-piercing than before.
    4. They even tried to murder Oggy and friends a couple of times and kept getting them working for their leader.
    5. They began to betray each other and start getting into fights which is something they normally didn’t do in the previous seasons.
    6. They were usually miscast as villains in most of the episodes since their roles as villains or anti-heroes were depicted in an inconsistent manner, making them lack focus as the villains.
    7. They were also turned into huge punching bags in this season as they have the least amount of wins, unlike the other seasons. Yes, they were also punching bags during the fourth season, but it was never taken this far.
    8. Despite their moments of getting punished here and there, they sometimes never get comeuppance for their actions, making them Karma Houdinis to some extent.
    9. The episode, "Emperor for the Day" is where the roaches are (if not) at their absolute worst, when Oggy is sleeping, they stole his soldier attire, just to bring back. This causes Bob to get mad when the emperor finally dates with Bobbete, causing the dog soldiers to destroy the cat soldiers (while they are having a party), leaving them injured, and the tents are destroyed, causing them to create Waterloo.

    Good Qualities

    1. They were much better characters in seasons 1-4 and have massively redeemed themselves as of seasons 6 and 7.
    2. There were still some moments where they can be funny.
    3. They usually do get punished for most of their actions.
    4. This season did give some of the cockroaches character development, especially for Marky.
    5. They still care for Oggy; for one instance, they weren't so happy when the former got married.
    6. As the main antagonists of Oggy and the Cockroaches, they're likely supposed to be hated due to their constant tormenting of Oggy.

    Trivia

    • French music composer Hugues Le Bars, who originally provided the vocal effects of Oggy, the Cockroaches and miscellaneous characters, died in November 1, 2014 after the fourth season of Oggy and the Cockroaches ended, so beginning from the series' fifth season, archival recordings of Hugues Le Bars' voice clips are reused to voice the Cockroaches since then.
