Hi out there! It's me, Steve! Have you seen Blue, my puppy? (Kids: There she is!) Well, come on in!
~ Steve's intro

Steven "Steve" is the main protagonist for the first four seasons of Blue's Clues. He is Blue's caregiver and Joe's older brother and mentor.

Steve is always ready to play Blue's Clues and always needs the viewer(s), to help to figure out problems and find clues. Steve likes anything that is striped, like his shirt. Steve went to college on a hopscotch scholarship. He then became the captain of his Junior Varsity Hopscotch Team. He takes a science class, a writing class, an English class and a math class. In the Blue's Clues reboot, Blue's Clues & You (which takes place years after Steve graduated college), Steve is a detective at Blue Prints Detective Agency (named after the original series' 1995 test pilot).


Steve has dark brown hair, a long-sleeved green striped shirt, light brown pants, dark brown shoes, or light tan shoes in some Season 3 episodes, and a black leather belt. In the first two seasons, he had medium length hair, but as time went on, his hair got shorter and shorter and became bald, as revealed in Blue’s Clues and You. However, in "The Wrong Shirt", Steve wore a long-sleeved light brown shirt and green striped pants, which are the shirt and pants colors of his normal outfit reversed.


Steve had appeared in every episode until Steve Goes to College. His role was taken over by Joe in the episodes after it. He later made an appearance in 100th Episode Celebration, and made a voice only appearance in Blue's First Holiday, his last appearance in the series. He and Joe also guest star in the Blue's Clues reboot, Blue's Clues & You!.

Evolution of Steve's Voices

  • Early Season 1: Steve's voice is more of a higher pitched, exciting and cheerful voice.
  • Mid Season 1-Season 2: Steve's voice starts to sound even more friendly and a little high pitched, starting in A Snowy Day.
  • Season 3-4: Just like Season 2, his voice is still friendly but it becomes low pitched now, even though his Season 2 voice can still be heard in Blue's Big Pajama Party and a few episodes.



Evolution of Steve


  • In the pilot episode, "Blue Prints", Steve wore a short-sleeved red polo, but it was replaced with a long-sleeved green-striped shirt in the series.
  • Steve's notebook is square shaped. It is colored green and has a picture of the thinking chair on the front.
  • Steve draws right handed.
  • Joe is Steve's younger brother whom he takes care of when he was a baby.
  • Steve got Blue by wishing that he could have the blue puppy in one of his storybooks.
  • On some of the season 3 episodes, Steve wears tan colored shoes, instead of the dark brown leather shoes he normally wears.
  • Steve did not mention Joe until Joe's First Day.
  • In What's So Funny, Steve thinks shoes belong on our ears, though he is always shown wearing shoes on his feet.
  • Steve normally skidoos only twice in one episode. However, the most number of times that he has skidooed in an entire episode was four times.
  • Steve's favorite food is bananas. He loves it especially in banana bread and his grandmother's banana cookies.
    • Actor Steve Burns said his favorite foods include cheeseburgers, Italian food, peanut butter and oatmeal.
  • Steve was a clue in Magenta Comes Over. When he realized he was a clue, he told the viewer he always wanted to be a clue.
  • Steve's voice was higher pitched in the early seasons, but the voice was later lost.
  • In season 1 his hair is slightly long and black instead of brown in seasons 2-4
  • There have been many rumors about the reason Steve Burns (Steve's actor) departed from the show--such as him being addicted to drugs. In actuality, the real reason Burns left the show was to pursue a music career, and because his hair was thinning and he was worried about seeming too "old" to the kid viewers. Steve Burns has been successful in indie rock circles thanks to his connections with his friends, the Flaming Lips.
  • Despite Steve being a Nickelodeon character, he makes a brief, non-speaking cameo appearance in the 2009 Disney/Pixar film Up right after Carl Fredricksen takes off.
