“Hi, you got a second?” Steve, wearing an updated version of his iconic green striped shirt, asked in a clip shared to Nick Jr.’s Twitter.

“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? And then one day, I was like, ‘Oh hey, guess what? Big news… I’m leaving,’” Steve recalled, before reminding fans how he decided to leave the show after four seasons to “go to college” back in 2002.

After leaving the show, Steve explained in the video that he was able to challenge himself and use his mind. Now that he’s older, he’s getting to do many of the things he always wanted to do.

He then acknowledged the journey all of his fans have been on since he left Blue’s Clues.

“Look at all you have done and all you have accomplished in all that time,” Steve said. “And it’s just… it’s just so amazing, right? I mean, we started out with clues and now it’s what? Student loans, and jobs, and families, and some of that has been kind of hard, you know? I know you know.”

Even though it’s been a long time, Steve thanked all of the Blue’s Clues fans for the support and love they’ve given him over the years.

“That’s super cool,” Steve concluded. “I guess I just wanted to say that after all these years I never forgot you. Ever. And I’m super glad we’re still friends…”

Steve was the original host of Blue’s Clues when it premiere on Nickelodeon back in 1996. After leaving the show, Steve went on to make music with the band Flaming Lips. Over the years, he would occasionally pop back in and make cameos on Blue’s Clues.

In an interview from a few years ago, Steve opened up about his decision to leave Blue’s Clues.
