Here's a little childhood nostalgia for you: The classic TV show from our youth, Blue's Clues, just turned 20.
Yes—20 years ago, Steve—whose real name is actually Steve Burns—sat in his big red chair for the first time and solved those mysteries with his best friend, a blue dog aptly named Blue, to entertain toddlers everywhere on Nickelodeon. Check out the hysterical tweets Burns sent out celebrating the anniversary, (via New York 4).
Remember the tragic day in 2002 when Steve was replaced with his "brother" Joe (Donovan Patton)? Well, unbeknownst to many, the real Steve actually went on to pursue a career in music, collaborating with the Flaming Lips and starting his own band, Steve Burns And The Struggle. Nowadays, he grabs some stints in small indie films.

And as you can imagine, he looks a little different now:
