Do you remember Steve Burns? In 1996, Nickelodeon introduced us to “Blue’s Clues," and kid's TV would never be the same. The show featured an affable, oblivious host talking to household items like salt shakers with French accents while deducing what his blue dog was trying to say to him through cryptic paw print clues.
And then, at the height of the show's popularity, Burns became the Dave Chappelle of preschool and just walked away, leaving the world stunned, according to The Huffington Post.
Burns has gone on the record stating that he left "Blue’s Clues" for a number of reasons. One was to pursue a career in music. Following the show, Burns worked with members of The Flaming Lips to produce his debut album "Songs For Dustmites." Burns would go on to work with the band on other projects as well.
