Bob Hope's Salute to the 75th Anniversary of the World Series was a 1978 television special with a sports theme, broadcast over NBC. Hosted by Bob Hope, with assistance from Danny Kaye, the guest roster included Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy.

In their bit, Hope asks Kermit to join his baseball team. Piggy, acting as the frog's manager, makes outrageous demands: "three hundred grand for the season, limousine service to the ball park, caviar and champagne between innings, fresh flowers in the dugout daily and, oh yeah, a hairdresser for his agent." The sketch ends with Hope suggesting football instead, kicking around the old pig-skin, which merits a punch from Piggy. [1]
