The Piggy Bank (Oggy and the Cockroaches)
The Piggy Bank is the 58th episode of Oggy and the Cockroaches (Season 1). This episode then got a remastered version in Season 6, titled Locked Out, and being the 69th episode of the season.
To prevent the roaches from stealing his drinks, Oggy gets a key and puts it in a piggy bank. Later, they put TNT in his mouth and he needs water fast.
Why It Sucks
- It's a miserable 6 minute 41 second Oggy torture episode.
- The roaches, Bob, and even the piggy bank itself have gone to Patrick Star in seasons 6-8 of SpongeBob SquarePants levels.
- Horrible ending: The refrigerator gets crushed by Bob and Oggy faints. The roaches and the piggy bank celebrate by having a drink as the episode ends.
- The Piggy Bank can apparently stop a TGA from moving!
- Tons of filler (like the scene where the cockroaches shut off the pipe).
- The characters torturing Oggy never get comeuppance (except Bob).
- The ways Oggy tries to open the piggy bank feel uninspired.
- Bob was supposed to shoot the piggy bank with the bazooka, but he shot Oggy instead.
- Animation, soundtrack, sound effects, and voice acting provided by Gaumont and Xilam are decent, as usual.
- The cockroaches boiling is satisfying to watch.
- CN India and Asia almost never aired this episode.
- As stated in WIS#8, this may be a reference to "The Bird of Ill Omen" and "Cartoon Lesson" where the hunters accidentally shoot something due to their blindness.
