Grown-up followers of “Blue’s Clues” are of their emotions after seeing Steve’s touching video explaining why he left the present in 2002
It looks like every part is making me cry currently and I do know I’m not alone. Take a fast scroll by your socials and also you’ll see the world exploding, COVID operating rampant, colleges shutting down, and every kind of pure disasters. We aren’t on a contented timeline today, my mates. That’s in all probability why we’re soaking by an entire field of tissues after seeing the candy video posted by Steve Burns, former star of Blue’s Clues. In a poignant and private message, he explains why he left the present in 2002 and it’s really one thing.
Before we chat, simply take it in. And severely — have some tissues useful.
Feeling sufficiently emotionally destroyed? Same. Ok, time to unpack it.
The video is in honor of the present’s twenty fifth anniversary so simply sit with that for a minute — 25 years. We are previous AF.
Steve begins off together with his trademark of chatting with viewers and giving it a beat to allow them to reply. For me, the feels have been immediate. Pure nostalgia. “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,’” he says of the time he left the present for “like, a really long time.”
“Can we just talk about that?” he asks in his extraordinarily soothing and acquainted voice. Like we kinda have to speak about it Steve, as a result of we’re all a sobbing mess now.
If you occurred to be a child within the late ’90s or early 2000s, you little question recall the day Steve launched his brother Joe because the present’s new host. Horrifyingly sufficient to these of us sufficiently old to recollect, that was a complete 19 years in the past in an episode known as “Steve Went to College.” Now, Steve explains that when he was away, he bought to make use of his thoughts and accomplish that a lot of what he all the time wished to do.
He then addresses us grown-up children and when you weren’t crying but, welcome to Sobsville. “Look at all you have done and all you have accomplished in all that time,” he says. “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.”
Oh we all know, Steve. We positively know.
