Cartwright is most famously known for voicing Bart Simpson on The Simpsons , but she also provided the high-pitched, quasi-language of Rufus on Kim Possible.

Kim Possible is an American animated action comedy - adventure     television series created by Bob Schooley and Mark McCorkle. The series revolves around eponymous high school student Kim Possible , a teenager tasked with fighting crime on a regular basis while coping with everyday issues commonly associated with adolescence. Kim is aided by her clumsy best friend and eventual love interest, Ron Stoppable , his pet naked mole rat Rufus , and ten year-old computer genius Wade. Known collectively as Team Possible, Kim and Ron's missions primarily require them to thwart the evil plans of the mad scientist—supervillain duo Dr. Drakken and his sidekick Shego , though they encounter several other enemies as well throughout the show. Veteran Disney Channel writers Schooley and McCorkle were recruited by the network to develop an animated series that could attract both older and younger audiences, and conceived Kim Possible as a show about a talented action heroine and her less competent sidekick. Inspired by the scarcity of female-led animated series at the time, the episodes are based on the creators' own high school experiences, combine elements of action, adventure, drama , romance and comedy to appeal to both girls and boys while parodying the James Bond franchise, spy and superhero films and teen sitcoms. Distinct from other Disney Channel shows in its use of self-referential humor , Schooley and McCorkle developed fast-paced sitcom -style dialogue in order to cater to adult viewers. Set in the fictional town of Middleton, Colorado, the show's setting and locations exhibit a retro -influenced aesthetic. With a strong emphasis on modern-day technology and the Internet , the series also explores themes such as girl power , feminism , and relationships.
