Christine Cavanaugh, an Annie Award-winning voice actor who brought to life such characters as Babe the Sheep Pig, Chuckie on Rugrats and the title kid in Dexter’s Laboratory, has died. She was 51. The Utah native died December 22, according to the Los Angeles Times; no cause of death was reported.

In 1991 she landed a regular gig as the voice of Goslyn Mallard on Darkwing Duck, appearing in more than 70 episodes. Probably her most famous TV gig began that same year as she voiced Chuckie Finster, the scaredy-cat oldest baby on Nickelodeon’s Rugrats. Cavanaugh played the character for 135-plus episodes until 2002, when Nancy Cartwright took over. She also played Chuckie in The Rugrats Movie (1998).
During that time she continued working on TV, landing a regular voice role as Bunnie Rabbot in »

Okay, the headline may be a little misleading, as it is just the voice of Chuckie. Yes, with a heavy heart we report that Christine Cavanaugh has passed away at 51 years young. The funny lady had a long resume with many kid shows (Rugrats, Dexter’s Laboratory and Darkwing Duck) and also guest roles on shows like E.R. and Cheers. TMZ reported that she passe away on the 22 of December, the cause was rumored to be cancer.
We are sadden by this news. We loved her and her wide range of talent. She was a staple for many who grew up watching her and who she played on TV. She never received the credit that she deserved. She certainly should have been given more credit in her long career. However, we understand that she may have liked it better the way that she did choose to live it.

Voice actress Christine Cavanaugh, who provided the scratchy, adorable coo of Chuckie Finster on "Rugrats" and Babe in the first "Babe" film, has died at age 51 according to TMZ. Cavanaugh dropped out of voice acting in 2001 due to unspecified personal issues, which was a pretty staggering upset for the voice industry since she was such a popular and respected performer. Her cause of death is unknown, though her Wiki states that she had Chronic myelogenous leukemia. Let's revisit some of her most famous and beloved work as a performer. Cavanaugh ranks among the great '90s cartoon voices like Tress MacNeille (Babs Bunny on "Tiny Toon Adventures," Dot on "Animaniacs") and E.G.

"I am the screeching fingernail on the chalkboard of justice! I am the sour ball in the candy jar of goodness! I am Negaduck!"
Artist Mitch Mueller has created another piece of fan art for the classic 1990s Disney animated series Darkwing Duck. The one features the hero's nemesis, NegaDuck. The artist has definitely taken the character to a more sinister level in this illustration. To see his Darkwing Duck art, click here, and for GizmoDuck, click here. Mueller is on a kick with the Darkwing Duck series, and I hope he does more. He should also expand into some of the other classic Disney animated series' from the '80s and '90s. »

ThunderCats was one of those perfect cartoons that could have only come out in the '80s. They tried a modern day reboot, and it just didn't catch on. I would still love to see what a live-action movie would look like, but who knows if it will ever happen. If it doesn't, that's ok. We'll always have the original animated series to enjoy, and fan art like this. These character designs come from artist Mitch Mueller, who previously created art for Darkwing Duck and GizmoDuck.

"Let's get dangerous!"
Artist Mitch Mueller has created this extremely cool version of the classic 1990s Disney cartoon superhero Darkwing Duck. As you can see, it is a much darker and grittier version of the character than we know. Mueller is the same artist who brought us a badass fan illustration of GizmoDuck, a character from the same series. You can check that piece out here if you haven't seen it already. Darkwing Duck was one of those shows I enjoyed watching all of the time when I was growing up. It was just loaded with a ton of great characters and fun humor, and it was pretty action-packed for a kids series.

Growing up in the 1990s I had a blast watching the Disney animated series that the studio produced. These shows included DuckTales, Darkwing Duck, Gummie Bears, Chip ’n Dale Rescue Rangers, and, of course, Gargoyles. I’ve started showing these cartoons to my kids, and I’ve been reminded of some of the awesome characters that filled these shows. There are the main characters that we all know and love like Goliath, Darkwing Duck, and others, but I wanted to shine a light on some of my favorite supporting characters in these series that I thought were awesome. These were all characters that I enjoyed seeing when they showed up in these cartoons.

The world loves actors — we follow them on Twitter, tune in to award shows to watch them out of character, and follow their everyday lives in magazines and on the Internet — but not all actors get the attention they deserve. Take voice actors for example, and we’re not talking about the likes of Tom Hanks in Toy Story or Nicolas Cage in The Croods, who are hired primarily for their star appeal more so than their ability to bring a character to life. No, we’re talking about actual full time voice actors, most of whom have voiced a character in the animated shows and video games we watch and play on a daily basis, and who most of us aren’t really aware of.
