The Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl to Guest Star on 'Ryan's Legendary Playdate' | Sneak Peek | Nickelodeon

Dave Grohl's 5-year-old daughter Ophelia, a.k.a. Fifi, appears alongside her dad in "Ryan's Legendary Playdate," airing Thursday on Nickelodeon

Dave Grohl is rocking out in a much different (and more adorable) way than his fans usually see him.

The Foo Fighters frontman and father of three, 50, makes a very special cameo on Nickelodeon's hit preschool series Ryan’s Mystery Playdate, in an upcoming episode titled “Ryan’s Legendary Playdate.”

No doubt one of his big motivators to appear on the show? Grohl’s youngest child, 5-year-old daughter Ophelia Saint, a.k.a. Fifi, “a Ryan superfan” who joins her dad and the rest of the gang for a jam session.

“Are you ready to rock?” Ryan asks her in a super sneak peek from the episode, below courtesy of PEOPLE.

“I’m always ready to rock!” Fifi answers — a perfect response from the daughter of a famous rock star.

Grohl lets the kids take the mic and play around onstage as he jams out on the drums — his instrument of choice oftentimes, and his main one during his days performing with Nirvana.

The multifaceted musician then leads Fifi, Ryan and his friends in a rendition of “If You’re Happy and You Know It,” with a few slight changes to the lyrics.

“If you’re happy and you know it, hug a bear,” he sings at one point — and a costumed bear appears, giving Fifi and Ryan a big squeeze to the delight of her dad.

“If you’re happy and you know it, pie your dad,” Grohl sings later, then realizes what just came out of his mouth and repeats, “Pie your dad?”

Without hesitation, Fifi appears from behind the drum set and gently smashes a whipped-cream confection into the face of Grohl, who groans as his daughter laughs.

With a face full of whipped cream, he continues, “If you’re happy and you know it, pie yourself” — and then it’s Fifi’s turn to turn her face into a dessert!

This won't be the first time Grohl has been a guest on a Nick Jr. show. In 2011, Grohl appeared in a live show of Yo Gabba Gabba where he helped perform the "Peanut Butter Stomp" dance.

Ryan’s Mystery Playdate's episode “Ryan’s Legendary Playdate” airs Thursday at 11:30 a.m. ET/PT on Nickelodeon USA! Check out a sneak peek below!:






From Loudwire:

DAVE GROHL TO APPEAR ON NICKELODEON KIDS’ SHOW ‘RYAN’S MYSTERY PLAYDATE’

Dave Grohl is set to appear on Nick Jr. children's show Ryan's Mystery Playdate. A preview shows the Foo Fighters frontman cavorting with the program's 7-year-old host and YouTube sensation Ryan Kaji, along with other children, including one that appears to be the rocker's youngest daughter.

The clip shared on Facebook Tuesday (Oct. 29) advises viewers to tune in for new episodes of Ryan's Mystery Playdate "all week long at 11:30a/10:30c on Nickelodeon!" However, it doesn't specify when the episode with Grohl as a guest will air. Watch the video down toward the bottom of this page.

"Hi everybody, I'm Dave Grohl," the musician offers by way of introduction in the preview. "I'm a rock 'n roll musician, but this is kind of the coolest thing yet. My daughter has been watching the show constantly, so it's like meeting a real rockstar. I'm not the rockstar here, Ryan is."

He continues, "It's important for every kid to learn about music and learn to play an instrument. But the best part is when you get together with your friends and play a song. That's the best thing."

The episode will likely debut Thursday, Oct. 31, judging by Nickelodeon's programming schedule. The synopsis for the chapter titled "Ryan's Legendary Playdate/Ryan's Master Handed Playdate" — which doesn't mention Grohl by name — reads, "Ryan rocks and shreds through challenges before going for the record with his legendary playdate. Ryan must shine a light on some challenges before putting on a charaded performance with his mystery playdate."

Ryan's Mystery Playdate is now in its second season after it initially premiered in April. The show's based on the popular YouTube channel "Ryan's World," formerly "Ryan ToysReview."
