Sad news to report: Christine Cavanaugh, a beloved voice actress who played a great deal of our favorite childhood cartoon characters, has passed away at the age of 51.

TMZ is reporting that Christine, who retired from voice acting in 2001, died on Dec. 22, though details are scarce at this point. Although you may not know her name, she was the voice behind hugely successful cartoon characters like Chuckie from ‘Rugrats,’ the title character from ‘Babe’ and even Dexter from ‘Dexter’s Laboratory.’ She also voiced characters from ‘Aladdin,’ ‘The Powerpuff Girls,’ and ‘The Wild Thornberrys’ — just to name a few.

The LA Times published an obituary for Christine where she is being fondly: "Whether she was a baby sitter as an adolescent, a voice in a cartoon, an aunt, a sister, and friend, young or old it didn't matter. She always made the most of where you were and what circumstance arose. Her imagination, humor and intelligence were evident to anyone who had the pleasure of meeting her."

Our thoughts go out to Christine’s family during this incredibly difficult time.
