Z Men To The Rescue (Oggy and the Cockroaches)
Title Z Men To The Rescue.png
X-Men without the X and without the logic.
Part of Season: 5
Episode Number: 61
Air Date: June 4, 2018
Writer: Olivier Jean-Marie
Previous episode: Metalman
Next episode: Mythologgy

Z Men to the Rescue is the sixty-third episode of Season 5 of Oggy and the Cockroaches.


These three diabolical cockroaches escape from jail. The Z-men - Olivia, Jack and Oggy - move into action. Their boss Bob sends them out to neutralize the nasties! But the roaches relish their new-found freedom. No way are they going back behind bars!

Why It Sucks

  1. The problem with this episode is that It uses copyrighted characters from the X-Men series. Keep in mind that this episode was grouped with 2 other superhero episodes, and Metalman used a copyrighted character from Marvel, which is Iron Man. The Fantastic Four one parodied it, making the only superhero episode without using copyright characters.
  2. It is one of the episodes that cash cow on pop culture, which is a common practice in Season 5.
  3. The trumpet fanfare at the title card is just bad. In fact, the soundtrack of the episode is mediocre.
  4. It is nothing but a generic "defeat the monster and save the day" episode.
  5. The ending is horrible as Bob (Professor X) was badly injured but yet the Oggy (Wolverine), Olivia (Jean Gray), and Jack (Cyclops) laugh about it.
  6. Bob (Professor X) did not actually help, he just played with the cockroaches like a little kid.
  7. It can be considered a forgettable X-Men parody or a rejected episode.
  8. The monster formed by the cockroaches doesn't look to creative. it looked like as if a little kid made it.
  9. That creepy stare Joey gives at the audience after escaping out of prison.
  10. Ironically, this episode was only made just to promote Deadpool 2,(the film that is set in the X-Men movie universe) which came out on May 18, even though Deadpool 2 is rated R, so why bother making an episode for kids just to promote an adult-oriented movie?

The Only Redeeming Quality

  1. Passable animation, as usual.
