Christine Cavanaugh, voice of ‘Rugrats,’ ‘Dexter’s Lab,’ dies at 51

If you grew up in the early 1990s then odds are you loved Christine Cavanaugh’s work. She was the voice behind a few legendary characters of animation, as well as a driving force behind their franchises in a career that tackled almost every genre in television.

Cavanaugh was the voice of the lovable Chuckie, the red-headed baby with a lot of worries, from “Rugrats.” She also voiced characters in “Darkwing Duck,” “Aladdin,” “The Critic,” “The Powerpuff Girls” and “The Wild Thornberrys,” just to name a few of the series that she lent her talents to in her outstanding career.

It was back in 2001 that Cavanaugh retired from voice acting, Nancy Cartwright (voicing Bart Simpson) took over the role when she left. The cause of death has not been released at this time.
