This isn’t the kind of news we like to share at the end of a year, but it is with great sadness that we announce the passing of voice actress Christine Cavanaugh on December 22, 2014. Known for playing such animated roles as Dexter from Dexters Laboratory and Chuckie Pickles from Rugrats, Disney Afternerds will always remember her first as the voice of Darkwing Duck’s adoptive daughter Goslyn, playing the role both on Darkwing Duck and Raw Toonage. Besides her role as Goslyn, Ms. Cavanaugh also served as a voice actress on a number of other Disney TV Animated shows including Aladdin: The Series, Recess, 101 Dalmatians: The Series, The Weekenders and Hercules. To read more about her amazing life and to leave a remembrance for her, please visit her obituary on LA Times.com.
