Elizabeth Ann Guttman (born September 11, 1961), known professionally as E.G. Daily, is an American actress, voice actress, singer, and comedian best known as the voice of Tommy Pickles from Rugrats and Buttercup from The Powerpuff Girls (the original 1998 version, not the 2016 reboot). Her on-camera appearances include Valley Girl, Streets of Fire, Pee-wee's Big Adventure, The Devil's Rejects, 31, and was the voice of the titular pig in Babe: Pig in the City (replacing her Rugrats co-star Christine Cavanaugh from the original film).

She's also a singer from way back in The '80s (she even appeared as a musical guest on a season 11note  episode of Saturday Night Livenote ); two of her songs even showed up in Scarface (1983) and one in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. She also appeared in Better Off Dead singing at the high school dance and another of her songs, "Mind over Matter", was in the soundtrack to Summer School (she had replaced Debbie Harry, who had recorded it originally, only for record company politics to intervene). She also sang the theme to the short-lived series Cover-Up, a cover of Bonnie Tyler's "Holding Out For a Hero". Her real-life boyfriend at the time was the series' star, Jon-Erik Hexum, who tragically died midway through the series run after accidentally shooting himself in the head with a prop gun filled with blanks.

In 2013, she auditioned for the fifth season of The Voice. Her rendition of Faith Hill's "Breathe" convinced both Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton to turn their chairs for her. She ended up selecting Blake as her coach.
