Steve Left ‘Blue’s Clues’ Because He Was Going Bald

Remember Steve from the old Nickelodeon TV show “Blue’s Clues”?

Steve Burns starred on the show for five seasons and then left abruptly in 2002 without really saying why. There were many theories about what happened to him. The Internet said he died, possibly of a drug overdose or maybe a car crash.

But Steve is still alive. In a Huffington Post interview last month he said “I Googled the conditions of life, and I meet every single one of them”. He uses the Twitter handle @SteveBurnsAlive to reinforce it.

In a 10-year anniversary “Blue’s Clues” special, Steve said he didn’t want to go bald on a kids show. Then in the Huffington Post interview he confirmed that getting older and losing his hair had a lot to do with his decision.

“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…it just felt like time. I just had a gut feeling like it was time to go,” he said.

What has Steve been up to since then? Steve says that he is bald now and 43 years old. He says “I’ve been earnestly balding, which takes up a lot more time than people think, and also I’m a voice-over guy…If you hear a guy on TV that tries to sell you insurance and sounds like the guy from ‘Blue’s Clues,’ that’s me.”

When asked if people recognize him he says “Oh, my God, no. I have to convince people. No, I look much more like Moby…than I do like Steve from ‘Blue’s Clues’”.
