    I've watched quite a few episodes of this series now, and one thing I have noticed is that Gomez and Morticia have never kissed on-screen. While there is quite a bit implied, and while Gomez does kiss up her arm a lot, I've noticed they always make some kind of "excuse" for them not to kiss. For example, in the Christmas episode Morticia is up on a ladder, putting up Christmas decorations. Gomez is about to kiss her, and Morticia (almost losing her balance) says "Darling, please, not on the ladder". Also, in Morticia's Romance Part 1, when Ophelia kisses Gomez, she tilts him back so that his head is in the bushes so we cannot actually see them kiss.

    So basically, my question is, was there ever a time when they kissed on-screen. And also, when were kisses allowed to be shown on-screen. I tried to look it up, but I couldn't find it. I asked my mother, and she said it was probably before the Addams Family was made, so it's a little weird.

    I hadn't thought of this before. I can't remember them kissing either. And kissing was definitely allowed at the time.

    That's really strange then. I wonder why they did that.

    The two actors playing Gomez and Mortica probably hated each other and refused to kiss. Or the writters just didn't want them two.

    Maybe they didn't kiss on screen to tease the viewers. We all expect them to kiss and then they pull away at the last second.

    Yeah, it's weird. I asked my mom and she said by that point characters were definitely allowed to kiss on-screen. So there must have been some other reason.

    Well, we know that in the sitcom versions they didn't kiss, but in the movies and cartoons, they did. Hell, just as her mother & father were finally able to kiss on-screen, Wednesday herself too--once she grew up through the course of life--was able to get a kiss from Joel Glicker in the second Addams film.
