Christine Cavanaugh is the incredibly talented woman behind some of TV's best cartoon characters. Her most well known roles are Dexter, the boy genius on Cartoon Network's "Dexter's Laboratory"; Chuckie Finster, the perpetually terrified toddler of Nickelodeon's "Rugrats"; and Babe, the sheep-pig from Universal Picture's "Babe". (Unfortunately, Christine was not Babe in the sequel, "Babe: Pig in the City", for "personal reasons". E.G. Daily, who also provides the voice for Tommy Pickles from "Rugrats", voiced Babe in the sequel.) Christine also lends her voice to such great characters as Gosalyn Mallard (Disney's "Darkwing Duck"), Oblina (Nick's "Aaahh! Real Monsters"), Dumpling (Disney's "101 Dalmations: The Series"), Marty Sherman (Comedy Central's "The Critic"), Bunnie Rabbot ("Sonic the Hedgehog"), Bamm Bamm ("Cave Kids"), Valerina (Nick's "Brothers Flub"), and many others. She guest starred in two episodes of Nick's "Salute Your Shorts" as Mona Tibbs, was in an episode of the "X-Files" ("Small Potatoes"), was in the movie Soulmates, and has been in many other movies.
Christine Cavanaugh some how finds time for gardening and occasionally shopping at garage sales. She is also a member of the North Hollywood Playhouse West Theater Company. As far as TV, she has said, "I loved Rhoda, Mary Tyler Moore, Taxi, all those shows," although it is beyond me how she finds time to watch anything. When asked if she ever wanted to be another Rugrat, she told Nickelodeon Magazine that she would most like to be Angelica, because she is the "bad guy"; however, she also said that it is easy for her to play the part of Chuckie because she worries alot (one of Chuckie's most outstanding traits).
Ms. Cavanaugh was nominated in 1997 and 1998 for the Annie Award for Outstanding Achievement for Voice Acting by a Female Performer in a Television Production for Dexter.
