What Happened to Steve?

Your childhood best friend, Steve Burns, is coming to Emerald City Comic Con! 

Watch the original face of the much-loved Blue’s Clue’s series, Steve, share what happened to him after he left the television show.

This separately ticketed event is Friday, August 19 from 8:00 – 9:00 PM at the Sheraton Grand Seattle.
