Sesame Street sketches at the residence of Kermit the Frog.

Picture Summary / First Appearance Description
Cold and Warm
Episode 0598
Grover is outside in the snow, freezing. He keeps knocking on Kermit's door, asking how to get warm, and Kermit keeps telling him to come inside. Grover, missing the point, tries ideas of his own to get warm, but they don't work. Finally, Kermit tells Grover that if he wants to get warm, he should come inside. Excited, Grover pulls Kermit aside, then goes in and slams the door, locking Kermit out. Grover goes to sleep in Kermit's armchair while the frozen frog scrapes at the window.
Episode 0800
Grover wants to sell Kermit some earmuffs, but Kermit doesn't have ears, so Grover gives Kermit some big human ears.
Kermit Calls A Plumber
Episode 0821

This segment was taped on August 15, 1975 and directed by Jon Stone.[1]
Weather Machine
Episode 0848
Salesmonster Grover comes to Kermit's home to sell him weather. As part of his pitch, he demonstrates a machine that makes it snow, makes it windy, and then makes it rain inside Kermit's living room.

Note: At the beginning of this sketch, Kermit tells Grover that he didn't know that he was a door-to-door salesman, which implies that this might be the first skit where Grover tried to sell something to Kermit.

The Leslie Mostly Show
Episode 1511
Leslie Mostly interviews Kermit in his home where he has several awards on display he received as a television news interviewer. She asks if it's the job he always wanted, but Kermit goes through several careers he considered by way of wearing various hats: a cowboy hat, a chef's hat, and a knight's helmet. She then asks him to show the home viewer how the job of a reporter works, and Kermit repeats the process with the hats until Leslie ends the interview.
Sunglasses Salesman
Episode 1727
Grover wants to sell Kermit a pair of sunglasses, but Kermit doesn't have a nose or ears to hold the sunglasses up with, so Grover gives Kermit a pair of sunglasses with attached ears, nose, and mustache (which Grover adds is optional).
Head Warmer
Episode 1877
While Kermit is at home typing his autobiography, salesmonster Telly comes to his doorstep and asks if Kermit wants to buy a head warmer. Telly keeps worrying he's not doing a good job, and that Kermit won't want one. But Kermit reassures him that since he does have a head, he will have a use for a head warmer, unlike the things Grover sells (toothbrushes, earmuffs and nose warmers). When Telly puts the head warmer on Kermit, it covers the frog's entire head. Telly remarks, "Kermit! It's, it's you!"
Hair Piece
Episode 1972
When Grover comes to Kermit's home dressed in salesman attire, Kermit quickly tells Grover that he doesn't want anything, since Grover always tries to sell him things that he has no use for. However, Grover tells Kermit that he has come to give him a hairpiece. After putting it on Kermit's head, Kermit decides that it doesn't look very good. Grover agrees, and offers to sell him a comb, a hair brush, some shampoo, and hair tonic.
The Monster Fix-It Team
Episode 2377
