We all remember watching Blue's Clues right? Sure, a lot of us were older, but personally I remember the kids I used to babysit being obsessed with it.
"There's a clue!" the children would scream at the top of their lungs, and I would cringe, because I knew that Steve wasn't going to hear them. They would only scream louder, but he would pretend like he couldn't see the big blue paw print in the middle of his cartoon house. This would go on for many, many minutes.
Steve took care of Blue, while solving the mysteries that she would give him. When he mysteriously disappeared he was replaced by Joe. Joe had to step in to cover for his so-called brother, but a lot of kids were wondering where Steve and his handy-dandy notebook got to.
There were actual conspiracies going on including rumors about his death, but the actor admitted it was all a lot more relatable: he didn't want to go bald on TV. "I was going bald and I kind of looked around and I'm like – the people who decided that I should wear these pants are not going to choose a wig with any dignity for me. It's just not going to happen," he revealed to The Daily Mail.
But none of this is what matters right now, because the issue isn't Steve vs. Joe, it's new Blue's Clues vs the original.
That's right, Nickelodeon is bringing back the famous kid's show with some improvements that people aren't exactly thrilled about.
