RIP Christine Cavanaugh


On Dec. 22, 2014, Christine Cavanaugh, best known as the voice actress for a number of 1990s cartoon characters, passed away from unknown causes. She was 51, and her career is notable for leaving a huge impact on Millennials, providing the voices of animated individuals that were regularly viewed by a generation during childhood.

Cavanaugh primarily voiced Chuckie from Nickelodeon’s “Rugrats,” Dexter from Cartoon Network’s “Dexter’s Laboratory,” Gosalyn from “Darkwing Duck,” and Oblina from “Aaahh!!! Real Monsters,” in addition to making contributions to shows like “Sonic the Hedgehog,” “The Critic” and “Cave Kids.”

The iconic actress is also recognized as the voice of the eponymous swine in the beloved 1995 film “Babe.”

Although she retired from the industry in 2001, Cavanaugh had won an Annie Award only a year prior in 2000 for one of her performances as boy-genius Dexter.

"There are a lot of people inside of me,” she once said. “With voice-overs, I get to be different people."
