The New Steve

One of my kids' favorite TV shows is Blue's Clues, which has been showing on Nickelodeon for many years. Audrey watched it when she was little, and the other three still do from time to time (on video; we haven't had cable for years).

If you are familiar with the show, you know that the original host Steve Burns left the show in 2002. His replacement, a fellow named Joe (played by Donovan Patton), just doesn't have Steve's charm or sense of humor. Audrey and I agree that the show has never been the same since Steve left.

Anyway, did you ever wonder what has happened to Steve? He actually released a rock album (he had been in several bands before being hired as the host of Blue's Clues). Here is a video that he released in 2003. It's actually a pretty decent song!

That wasn't too bad! Check out "I hog the ground" by Steve. It's his children's ode to the groundhog. Very cute.

I agree about Joe. When they went to Joe it was Blue's Clues "jumping the shark" moment. Just never the same.
