Nostalgia Abounds as FAN EXPO Dallas Announces ‘Blue’s Clues’ Host Steve Burns


Mail Time! We didn’t exactly just get a letter, but what we did get is pretty much just as good! The original host of the beloved children’s program Blue’s Clues, Steve Burns himself, is headed to FAN EXPO Dallas.

The American actor, television host, singer, and musician was the first man to host the long-running adventures of the beloved dog Blue and all their friends. Burns hosted the show from 1996 to 2002 and even won a Daytime Emmy for his performance in 2001. However, even though he left the show, he was never forgotten by the kids who grew up watching him. So in 2021, he came back to the role for the show’s 25th anniversary, dropping a video that hit many people right in the feels. Now he’s in the new Blue’s Clues movie alongside the show’s other two hosts and has made a comeback in a big way.

Burns is set to appear at FAN EXPO Dallas on Saturday and Sunday, with photo ops available for $70 and autographs for $50. The convention has not yet announced any panels that will feature Burns, but there is no doubt that fans will have plenty of opportunities to get their much-needed dose of nostalgia.

FAN EXPO Dallas will land at the Kay Baily Hutchinson Convention Center in downtown Dallas on June 9-11, 2023. Burns joins the already announced Joseph Quinn and The Office cast members as the first guests for 2023.
