Cartoon Network aired what’s believed to be its first openly gay couple on a recent episode of its animated series Clarence.

In the episode titled “Neighborhood Grill,” two men met for a date and proceeded to kiss — but the kiss was censored.

The show’s writer, Spencer Rothbell, answered fans’ questions on Twitter about the kiss and revealed he had to fight with Cartoon Network to get the gay couple on screen.

He added later: “It’s such a minor throwaway moment but I guess it’s better than nothing. Maybe one day the main character can be gay and it won’t be a big deal.

Watch the moment below.
