An Encyclopedia Salesman pays a visit to Grandma's cottage in a Sesame Street News Flash segment. He is greeted by Kermit, who was expecting the Woodsman, but the man says he's "The Salesman." The salesman asks Kermit if he wants to buy some encyclopedias, but Kermit declines.
The salesman subsequently chases the Big Bad Wolf, who's chasing Little Red Riding Hood, asking if either are interested. Sensing that the sales prospects are limited, the encyclopedia purveyor departs.
