Blue’s Clues has us in our feelings

Blue’s Clues was my go-to as a child.

I have very vivid memories of some episodes. I credit Blue’s Clues with my great imagination (amongst other things).

Celebrating its 25th anniversary, Nickelodeon’s beloved children’s series “Blue’s Clues” has pulled out all the stops, including original host Steve Burns.

After his sudden departure from the show in 2002, which broke the hearts of toddlers and tweens across the nation, Burns is back — and this time with an explanation in a video from Nick Jr., Nickelodeon’s preschool programming channel.

If millennials are known for one thing, it’s living in the past! I’m laughing, but I’m very serious. 90’s nostalgia brings back so many great feelings for many of us. It brings back fond memories we miss.

“Hi, you got a second?” Steve opens the video.

I wasn’t prepared for what came next.

With his two-minute message, Burns filled out a gaping hole in the childhoods of fans who grew up with the show, which was rebooted as “Blue’s Clues & You” in 2019. After clueing viewers in on his “challenging but great” journey, Burns commended them for all of their help and great feats in the meantime.

“And then look at you and look at all you have done and all you have accomplished in all that time,” Burns said. “I guess I just wanted to say that after all these years, I never forgot you. Ever. And I’m super glad we’re still friends.”
