We all remember Steve and his magical thinking couch from Blue’s Clues, right?
Steve Burns starred on the show for five seasons before abruptly leaving with little explanation as to why.
A lot of theories swirled around about what happened to Burns, like one that he died in a car accident, for example!
“I left the show because it was just simply time to go,” he said. “I was pretty much playing a boyish, older brother-ish 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,” Burns continued. “I just had a gut feeling like it was time to go.”
This is what Burns looks like now, in case you’re wondering. (And yes, his Instagram name is “Steve Burns Alive,” because lol.)
Dear Steve, thanks for those awesome five seasons. We love you with and without that hair.
Hope you get this letter soon…!
