Burns left the show in 2002 (after six years and 100 episodes!), and he posted a video for the 25th anniversary where he apologized to his young (and old, ahem!) viewers for leaving the show so abruptly, and made a lot of his fans weepy in the process. The fictional Steve’s younger brother Joe, played by Donovan Patton, took his place. The show was rebooted to Blue’s Clues & You! in 2019 with current host Dela Cruz.
Since leaving the show, Burns has led his musical talents to his band Steve Burns and the Struggle and in 2020, he appeared on an episode of the TV series Young Sheldon.
