Nickelodeon's 'Team Umizoomi' visit Gordon Ramsay -- VIDEO

Gordon Ramsay took a break from yelling obscenities in the kitchen to play nice with a couple of animated kids.

As part of Nick’s preschool series Team Umizoomi, which is all about math, Ramsay finds himself in need of some help in the kitchen when he finds a plate full of ingredients for strawberry shortcake not yet made. Ramsay’s famous temper is hinted at, although happily he manages to keep thing pleasant for the under-five set. Adults will get a chuckle out of Ramsay’s ending invitation for team Umizoomi to join him long-term as his cooking helpers. They may only be preschoolers, but even they know a bad idea when they hear it.

Heidi Klum on 'Umizoomi,' Her Kids' TV Obsession -- EXCLUSIVE CLIP

When your parents are model/TV personality Heidi Klum and singer Seal you learn a thing or two about what’s “cool.” But even though Leni, 8, Henry, 6, Johan, 5, and Lou, 2, are on the pulse of worldly trends — everything from Italian Speedos for kids to baby bleach-dyed Mohawks — it’s Nickelodeon’s educational TV series Umizoomi that’s their current main attraction.

“They love Umizoomi,” Klum told us at a preview for her new children’s clothing line Truly Scrumptious for Babies ‘R’ Us (in stores Sept. 15). “I think it’s great. It’s all about math, which is important. They should start from an early age on to learn about math and not be afraid of it. To learn that it’s fun. I do like that they like it.”

Klum scored points with her children when she told them she was teaming up with the computer-animated, musical television series for a spot that will premiere on Nick Jr., Sunday, August 19. During Klum’s appearance one of her high heels is not even with the other and Umi Team member Milli uses her measuring tape ponytails to add inches to it, illustrating the series’ message that math can be used to solve everyday problems.
