Rugrats – Nancy Cartwright
Nancy Cartwright is pleased to return to the Rugrats world as the voice of Chucky.
The reboot of Rugrats on Paramount+ gives the iconic Nickelodeon cartoon franchise a whole new look as a CGI-animated series. Also, the series updates the stories for current times that include Internet, cell phones, and social commentary since the show originated back in 1991.
For those unfamiliar with the concept of the series, it’s the silly adventures of a one-year-old baby Tommy Pickles and his group of playmates of infants and toddlers. They go on wild imaginative adventures and antics surrounded with crazy colorful parents.
Nancy Cartwright voices Chuckie Finster, who is the red-headed best friend to Tommy. He is a bit timid and clumsy—tending to be afraid of taking risks against adventures. She took over the voice role from the late Christine Cavanaugh, who retired after voicing the character after 11 years since its inception.
LRM Online’s Gig Patta spoke with the iconic voice actor about the new reboot of Rugrats. We talked about the show, updates, and on how she kept that Chuckie voice for all these years.
