Simpsons Wiki

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 Clark. She first worked with Simpsons co-producer James L. Brooks in 1976 when she provided the voice of Ted and Georgette Baxter's baby on The Mary Tyler Moore Show.

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 for the character to date. She also voiced Huey, Dewey, Louie and Webby Vanderquack in the original DuckTales (1987-1990) 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 (2002) video game series until Kingdom Hearts III (2019), 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 (1995), the second main voice for Pebbles Flintstone in The Flintstones (after Jean Vander Pyl), the nurse mice in The Rescuers Down Under (1990), Drizella Tremaine and the Fairy Godmother in Cinderella II: Dreams Come True (2002), and Cinderella III: A Twist in Time (2007) (and later reprised this role in Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep [2010]), and Widow Tweed in The Fox and the Hound 2 (2006).

She was married to Mickey Mouse's voice actor Wayne Allwine until his death in 2009.

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.

She is now currently buried at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park cemetery in Glendale, California.
