In 1994, there was a widely publicized woman-woman kiss on “Roseanne”.  Soon after the flak from that died down, the gay male couple on “Northern Exposure” was married — but did not get to kiss on-screen.  By happenstance, the week this cartoon was published (May 17, 1994), a less publicized male-male kiss did make it to television, albeit in a non-sexual situation — and again, it was on “Roseanne”.
