Obituary: Remembering Christine Cavanaugh

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (8 votes)

bunnie2_0.jpgIt is with great sadness that I must report on the passing of one of the giants of the voice-acting world.

Christine Cavanaugh passed away on December 22, 2014 at the young age of 51.  She is perhaps best-remembered as the voice actress of (in no particular order) Babe, Dexter (Dexter's Lab), Bunnie Rabbot (Sonic the Hedgehog), Chuckie Finster (Rugrats), Oblina (Aaahh!!! Real Monsters) and Goslyn Mallard (Darkwing Duck, Raw Toonage).

While her voiceography is not as long as other veteran voice actors and actresses, she more than made up for it with quality acting and defining fan-favourite characters, bringing them memorable personalities that lasted long after their shows completed their runs.

ABC, The CW order 'Beauty and the Beast' pilots

Your rating: None Average: 3.5 (2 votes)

American television broadcasters ABC and The CW have both ordered pilots of new series based on the traditional tale Beauty and the Beast.

The Disney-owned ABC's pilot has been described as "a fantastical re-imagining of the classic fairy tale set in a mythical, dangerous world wherein a beautiful and tough Princess discovers an unlikely connection with a mysterious beast". The CW's pilot, in the meantime, will be loosely based on the 1987 cult-classic CBS series starring Linda Hamilton and Ron Perlman.
