Russi Taylor (May 4, 1944 – July 26, 2019) was an American voice actress. On The Simpsons, she voiced Martin Prince, Sherri and Terri, and Üter. She also occasionally voiced Lewis.

Taylor's most notable role was providing the voice of Minnie Mouse, a position which she held since 1986, longer than any other voice actress. She also voiced Huey, Dewey, Louie and Webby Vanderquack in the original 1987 DuckTales series (and would later provide the voice of a younger Donald Duck for a single episode during Season 2 in the DuckTales 2017 reboot). She also did voice work in the Disney/Square Enix Kingdom Hearts video game series until Kingdom Hearts III, most notably reprising her roles as Huey, Dewey, Louie, and Minnie. Russi Taylor was the original voice of Strawberry Shortcake, Duchess the Hoggett's cat in Babe, the second main voice for Pebbles Flintstone in The Flintstones (after Jean Vander Pyl), the nurse mice in The Rescuers Down Under, Drizella and the Fairy Godmother in Cinderella II: Dreams Come True and Cinderella III: A Twist of Time, and Widow Tweed in The Fox and the Hound 2.

When her characters sang (for example, Martin in "Bart of Darkness" and "Burns' Heir"; and Sherri and Terri in "Faith Off"), Taylor also provided the singing voice.

On July 26, 2019, Taylor died at her home in Glendale, California of colon cancer at the age of 75.
