Christine Cavanaugh, 'Babe' And 'Rugrats' Voice Actor, Dies Aged 51


Christine Cavanaugh

Much-loved voice artist Christine Cavanaugh, remembered for her title role in the movie Babe as well as Chuckie in ‘Rugrats’, has died at the age of 51. She passed away at her home town of Cedar City, Utah on December 22nd, according to the LA Times which published her obituary.

Having attended Utah State University, Cavanaugh’s first significant breakthrough came when she provided the voice for the character Gosalyn Mallard on Disney’s animated ‘Darkwing Duck’, a spin-off of ‘DuckTales’.

This led to her most constant role on Nickolodeon’s ‘Rugrats’. As well as running for eleven years from 1991 to 2002, Cavanaugh’s enduring role as scaredy-cat Chuckie Finster saw her make two movies – The Rugrats (1998) and The Rugrats: In Paris (2000).

Babe Review


Excellent
Baa ram ewe. The already-classic kiddie flick wins raves for its groundbreaking animation and a theme that is both child-accessible while not insulting to adults. Plus, that little pig is so darn cute.

The Rugrats Movie Review


Excellent
So I'm a little late in writing this review. I really don't care. Neither do Tommy or Dill or Angelica or Chucky, who have pretty much been chased out of their playpen box-office by the funny but unintelligent A Bug's Life. But this movie suceeds where both A Bug's Life and it's competitor Antz failed: in creating a kids-love/adults-love movie. Kids love A Bug's Life, Adults love Antz. Both of them love Rugrats.

The most intelligent cartoon since The Simpsons (which the same animation team behind Rugrats worked on) has come to the big screen. It's a look at the babies of the new all-American parents: both at work, both armed with cell phones and faxes. They're raised by their sleeping grandfather and are intelligent beyond their single year.

Rugrats In Paris: The Movie Review


Very Good
Well, the Rugrats are back, and, as usual, they're way too sophisticated for their audience. The Simpsons of the Nickelodeon Network has meandered its way back onto the big screen, and this time they are hitting the streets of Paris with more Freudian slips than a sexually-charged first date.

To start with, Grandpa Lou has gotten remarried (leading into, by the way, an excellent parody of The Godfather in the first scene) and all Chuckie wants is a mommy. Meanwhile, Stu Pickles gets a call from Paris demanding that he come to fix a giant mechanical Reptar (a wonderful running Godzilla/Pokemon spoof gag from the series) which he designed.

Rugrats In Paris Review


Terrible

Maybe it's just me, but doesn't it seem flagrantly irresponsible to market a cartoon to kids in which a diaper brigade of babies have wonderful adventures when they wander away from their parents and get lost?

I've never seen the "Rugrats" TV show, but the plots of both nerve-grinding movies that the Nickelodeon series has spawned have involved children disappearing, and treated such events as a cornucopia of light-hearted entertainment.

I might be a little sensitive to the subject, but in a cultural climate in which kids seem to get kidnapped (and often murdered) more and more frequently, do we really want G-rated movies giving our little ones the impression that going missing is great fun?
