Voice actor Christine Cavanaugh had an unmistakable speaking style and an amazing range of characters including babies, animals, monsters, and little mad scientists. She's probably best known as the voice of Chuckie on Nickelodeon's Rugrats and the voice of Dexter on Cartoon Network's Dexter's Laboratory. Born in Utah, she moved to L.A. to become an actress and ended up doing voice work for a friend's student film. During the '80s, she provided the voice of Cathy for the three CBS animated specials based on the comic strip by Cathy Guisewite. She also did some normal acting as a guest star on Salute Your Shorts as well as a supporting role in the feature film Soulmates. In 1991, Cavanaugh started doing the voice of plucky girl duck Gosayln Mallard on the Disney cartoon Darkwing Duck as well as the voice of Chuckie Finster on the Klasky Csupo cartoon Rugrats. Obviously the bigger hit, Rugrats led to several video specials, video games, and eventually feature-length films. Staying with Klasky Csupo, she then provided the voice of Oblina, one of the three main monster-students on Aaahhh!!! Real Monsters. On the more grown-up side of things, Cavanaugh regularly appeared on The Critic as the voice of Marty, Jay Sherman's son, along with Nancy Cartwright (voice of Bart Simpson) as the voice of Jay's sister, Margo Sherman. You can also hear Cavanaugh on the animated series Sonic the Hedgehog, 101 Dalmatians: The Series, Hercules, The Powerpuff Girls, and King of the Hill, as well as the voice of Birdie in McDonald's commercials. In 1995, she lent her voice to the live-action film Babe in the starring role of Babe the Gallant Pig. Choosing not to participate in the sequel, Babe: Pig in the City, the role was instead played by her Rugrats co-star E.G. Daily (voice of Tommy Pickles). In 1996, she got busy as the intense boy-genius Dexter in Dexter's Laboratory and won an Annie Award in 2000 for the hour-long TV special Dexter's Laboratory: Ego Trip. She retired from acting and voice work in the early 2000s. Cavanaugh died in 2014, at age 51.
