WATCH: Steve Talks About His Sudden Departure From "Blue's Clues"

So I admit I teared up a little, watching this video from Steve Burns.

I was never a huge fan of "Blue's Clues" but my kids loved it. At least they did, until Steve left. After that it was never the same.

We heard rumors about why he left; the most prominent was simply that he decided it was time to go to college.

And apparently that's what happened.

But yesterday, Steve came back to talk to fans, as part of the show's 25th anniversary celebration... and the tweet went viral.

Steve says he never forgot about the viewers after he left "Blue's Clues." He said leaving the show in 2002 was really challenging but great because he got to do many of the things he always wanted to. Burns explained he couldn't have done it without all of the viewers.

He ended the message by saying he "just wanted to say that, after all these years, I never forgot you...ever. And I'm super glad we're still friends."

The video has been viewed over nine million times on Nick Jr's Twitter.
