First Appearance
Last Appearances
100th Episode Celebration (in person), Blue's First Holiday (heard and shown as younger self)

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 and has black hair. He has a light green and dark green striped shirt. He has gray pants and shoes. His belt is brown with a gold buckle.


For a total of 100 out of 143 episodes (including pilot), Steve appeared as the host from Blue Prints 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. In Blue's First Holiday, Steve called Blue and talked to everyone as a "holiday greeting", though this episode aired after Steve Goes to College. He technically had his last appearance on screen in the special Behind the Clues: 10 Years With Blue.


  • Steve had never found a clue by himself until the movie Blue's Big Musical Movie. In every other one of Steve's appearances, he needed You, the viewer, to help him.
  • Although, in the episode What Does Blue Want to Do on a Rainy Day, he did find a clue just as fast as the viewers were pointing it out.
  • Steve is the older brother of Joe.
  • Steve does not appear in all the versions of the show when it went international, although his iconic outfit is unaltered when other people play his role, like Kevin from the UK.
  • Steve got Blue by wishing that he could have the blue puppy (Blue) in one of his storybooks, and when he said that, Blue came skidooing out of the book and into Steve's arms.
  • It is never revealed in the series if Steve has a full name.
  • Steve didn't mention Joe until Joe Gets a Clue, the first part of the three-part TV-movie.
  • In What's So Funny?, Steve thinks shoes belong on ears, though he is always shown wearing shoes on his feet.
