Steve Burns Explains Why He Left 'Blues Clues' Years Ago, Plus See Recent Photos!
Steve Burns is best known for his role in the Nickelodeon series Blue’s Clues and his departure from the show in 2002 was never really explained, until now.
While some people surmised that Steve had died, others spread rumors that he had left the show for a music career. Neither were true.
“People think I left the show to pursue a music career. That didn’t happen at all,” Steve told the Huffington Post in a new interview. “I left the show because it was just simply time to go. I was pretty much playing a boyish, older-brotherish kind of character on the show. I was getting older; I was losing my hair; a lot of the original gangsters on the show, like the people who created it, were all moving on to other careers. It just felt like time. I just had a gut feeling like it was time to go.”

“I certainly wasn’t leaving Blue’s Clues to pursue a large music career because that never even happened. That was just a wonderful dream come true, [a] hobby thing that happened after Blue’s Clues,” Steve added.
Steve also talked about it being surreal to watch the series after the fact.
“It felt like a dream to wake up and be like, ‘Wait, people watched that all over the world?’ For me, it’s a very different experience than it is for everyone else, but to know that people who watched Blue’s Clues now have children that watch Blue’s Clues is a real brain-burner, that’s for sure. But it’s all just really cool. Maybe I’m Grover to somebody. That’s awesome. That’s just completely awesome,” he said.
