Yeah yeah, I know, weird topic.

However, as a father of 4, and 3 of those children watching Steve Burns on Blue's Clues, one of which was affected by the departure of Steve Burns from the Blue's Clues show...I had an interest in this one.

Today, we turned on Nickelodeon, for the kids to watch their normal morning cartoons, etc. Blue's Clues came on, and since I noticed Steve wasin the show, I asked my wife "Oh, so Steve Burns is back?"

I was kind of shocked at her reply. "No. This is an old one. Someone told me Steve Burns was in jail, and they saw it on vh1 news."

Immediately this sparked my inquisitive nature, and I had to find out what he went to jail for.

I quickly found out that he never was in jail, this was merely a popular rumor, which was included among other popular rumors (overdosed and died on heroin, etc).

What he is doing however, is a guitar player and lead singer in a rock alternative band (The Dustmites...formerly Flaming Lips), which released an album called "Songs for The Dustmites" (available on Amazon btw).

He was never arrested, and obviously never least yet, nor did he really go off to college as the show suggested, and people began to believe as truth.

Like I said, I know this is probably the strangest topic to ever grace HD, but as a father, and know that some of you are as well, it was an interest to me, and might be to those of you who have children that watched the show, when Steve Burns was the host.

If you'd like to see him now, and read more about it go here: (his official site)

Ok that's it for the strange post. lol

Well I have to say this is definitly one of the wiedest posts I have seen on a hosting forums in a long time. The sad thing is i have no clue who you are talking about since I don't have kids, but I still read every word of it, lol. I know of the show but have never seen it myself since I don't have kids.

The very weird thing is, anyone who knows me, also knows that this is not typically my forte. I knew it was a weird thing to post as I was posting it, but out of pure facination with the results of the research, I simply had to continue. My son was also very happy to find out that Steve is not a dead heroin junkie. lol

this is funny to me, because my friend Sami & I got into a arguement, "He's in college!" "No, he went to jail!" What she had heard is that he was on heroine, & raped someone on the set. I actually googled what happened to him & this popped up. You're not the only curious one. Haha
& i created an account jus to say this. ;p

I have to say, I didn't expect this from you. Interesting information though incase anyone ever asks where Steve went though. I could understand why after playing with a cartoon dog that you would pick up herion or start a band. You kind of lose your manly hood aftering living in an imaginary world with a blue dog saying were are the clues blue.

I never liked the show to be honest...I always got stuck watching it with my little cousin when I was babysitting her for my aunt last just an awful show.

I've been through the Blues Clues stages with my four grandchildren. I believe one of our dogs ate our Blue's Clues stuffed animals. Thanks for the info.
