On September 8, 2021, millennials across the nation found a forgotten face flooding their social media feeds: Steve from Blue’s Clues. It had been years since we last saw the original Blue’s Clues host, but he was just as we remembered. There he was—the Steve Burns—in his signature green striped shirt and all.
In the viral video posted to Nick Jr.’s Twitter account, the 48-year-old Nickelodeon alum said, "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. Here’s my brother Joe, he’s your new best friend,' and then I got on a bus and I left and we didn’t see each other for like a really long time?"
Steve then went on to give the viewers a heartfelt 'thank you,' and it seriously pulled on our heartstrings.
"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," he said.
