Steve from “Blues Clues” is back with a heartfelt message that’s hitting us in the feels. The original host of the 90s children’s series, Steve Burns, has returned in a video posted on Nick Jr’s Twitter account in honor of the show’s 25th anniversary. In the clip, he talks about why he left the show in 2002 and what he did afterwards, all while decked out in the same green striped shirt he used to wear on the show.
“You remember how when we were younger, we used to run around and hang out with Blue and find clues and talk to Mr. Salt and freak out about the mail and do all the fun stuff?” Steve says in character in the video. He talks about his “abrupt” departure from the show, explaining that he left to go to college. And he says he’s “proud” of fans for growing up and helping him to do the same.
“I guess I just wanted to say that after all these years I never forgot you. Ever,” he says. “And I'm super glad we're still friends…”
Fans have been sharing their emotional responses, posting about how much they’ve missed him.
