Blue's Clues
Legend Steve
Burns In
Young Sheldon
By JACOB WILLEFORD
The very successful spin-off “Young Sheldon” follows Sheldon Cooper (Iain Armitage), a 9-year-old boy with an incredibly high IQ, as he tries to fit in at his Texas high school. “Young Sheldon” has featured many famous guest stars like the iconic duo Penn and Teller, but there was another famous guest star in the show that you likely missed.
Steve Burns has been featured in two episodes of “Young Sheldon” in 2020 and 2022 as the character of Nathan, a fellow “Star Trek” enthusiast that Sheldon befriends through an online connection. Burns also wrote and sang the theme song for “Young Sheldon,” but he’s perhaps best known for his role in “Blues Clues” from the first episode in 1996 and several following seasons.
After the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Burns released a heartfelt video in September of 2021 addressing his abrupt exit from “Blue’s Clues” and the state of the world. Burns also reappeared in 2019’s “Blue’s Clues & You” and just finished production on “Blue’s Big City Adventure.”
