Christine Cavanaugh, the voice of Chuckie in Rugrats and the pig in Babe has passed away at the age of 51. Cavanaugh also voiced the mad scientist Dexter in Dexter’s Laboratory and Gosalyn Waddlemeyer-Mallard in Disney’s Darkwing Duck, Marty Sherman in The Critic, Oblina in Aaahh!!! Real Monsters and Bunnie Rabbot on Sonic the Hedgehog.

“There’s a freedom to voice-over acting,” Cavanaugh told the Toronto Star newspaper in 2000. “I can do things I could never do on camera. I can be elderly or I can be a baby … or animals. It’s wonderful.”

Her cause of death was not disclosed. Our hearts go out to her family. She was the voice of a lot of our childhoods. Rest in peace.
