Christine Cavanaugh, who provided the voice for the title character in “Babe” and for Chuckie on “Rugrats,” has died, reports the Los Angeles Times. She was 51.
Cavanaugh died Dec. 22 at her home in Cedar City, Utah. Details about the cause of her death weren’t disclosed.
Cavanaugh was popular for voice work because of her ability to sound like a little boy, the story notes. Her other work included the mad kid scientist Dexter in “Dexter’s Laboratory” and Gosalyn Waddlemeyer-Mallard in Disney’s “Darkwing Duck.”
She won an Annie Award for her work as Dexter in 2000, after earning nominations in 1997 and 1998, Deadline.com reports. In the 1990s and 2000s, she worked “101 Dalmatians: The Series,” “The Wild Thornberrys” and two “Rugrats” television movies, the story adds.
