Give Your Uncle Arthur a Kiss is the sixth episode of the first season of Family Ties. It aired on November 10, 1982.
Steven and Arthur (played by David Spielberg) have worked together at WKS Public TV for many years. The kids refer to him as "Uncle Arthur". When they are alone for a moment, Arthur hugs Mallory inappropriately. She approaches Alex for advice, but he's not that helpful, and Mallory downplays what happened. Arthur talks to her later, covering up his real intentions, and then kisses her forcefully. Mallory eventually tells Elyse about Arthur's action. Elyse confronts Arthur on-air during the pledge drive.
- Steven refers to Arthur as "Arthur Press", but IMDB calls him "Arthur Cantrell".
