Steve (played by Steve Burns), is the host of Blue's Clues for the first four seasons. Steve is Blue's caregiver. Steve is always ready to play Blue's Clues and always needs You, the viewer, to help to figure out problems and find clues. Steve likes anything that is green-striped, just 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/astrology class, a writing/poetry class, an English class, and a math class.
Steve enjoys finding clues when playing Blue's Clues, drawing clues also while playing Blue's Clues, imagining, helping others and discovering new things. He is not very witty and will most likely forget things. He often needs assistance finding clues from the viewer and is very compassionate.
Steve is a peach color human and has black hair. He has a light green and dark green striped shirt with horizontal slats. He has gray pants and black shoes, athough in some Season 3 episodes, he wore tan-colored shoes. His belt is brown with a gold buckle. In the Disney animated film Up, he wears a shirt that looks similar to the one worn in Blue's Clues and wears light brown pants instead of the gray pants.
For a total of 100 out of 143 episodes, Steve appeared as the host from of the pilot show titled Blue Prints. "Snack Time" was his first official appearance up until "Steve Goes to College". His role was taken over by Joe in the episodes after it. He later made a special appearance in the "100th Episode Celebration" and then three years after he had his last appearance in the special "Behind the Clues: 10 Years with Blue", he made a cameo appearance in the 2009 Disney animated film "Up" (produced by Pixar) and this time in CGI form. In the scene where Carl's house flies in town while being lifted by balloons, he looks up at it from the building. In the season 5 finale episode titled "Blue's First Holiday", Steve called Blue and Joe and talked to everyone as a "holiday greeting", though this episode aired after "Steve Goes to College".
