Hey! Do you guys know what time it is? Nostalgia time, nostalgia time, NOSTALGIA TIIIIIIIIIIME!
On September 8, 1996 a man named Steve introduced us to his dog named Blue for the very first time.
The show became an instant hit with the kids across Canada and North America.
So what happned to blues clues steve burns?
Bassically he got tired of gig. After Steve left the show back in 2002, the Internet speculated heavily on reasons why. From rumors of death to drug addiction, the Internet went pretty wild trying to solve the mystery. And a more common theory was that Steve had left to pursue a music career. But as it turns out, none of those reasons were really why Steve left the show.
But in an interview with the Huffington Post, Steve is finally coming forward about his Blue’s Clues departure… and it’s a pretty upsetting answer. As Steve explains, he was getting older, he was losing his hair — he just felt it was time to go.
“People think I left the show to pursue a music career. That didn’t happen at all.. 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.”
Time is a cruel mistress, y’all.
