Thanks to his work with a blue dog on the Nickelodeon show, Burns from 1996-2002. Steve Burns was replaced by Donovan Patton on Blue’s Clues.
The only thing he lost was his hair. As Burns says, “I was getting older; I was losing my hair…it just felt like time.” As the face of a children’s show, Burns thought his changing appearance wouldn’t fit with the desired aesthetic.
Since he left the show almost twenty years ago, he has been doing a lot of voiceover work and is about to release a children’s album called “Foreverywhere.”
