An episode of the classic childrens television show The Magic Door (Delet Haksamim), and aimed to educate children about road traffic safety. The plot centers around siblings Hagari and Yoav as they learn about road safety through various characters they encounter. Among the characters are the magician Yehoyakim Kook (played by Gideon Singer), the owner of the local pharmacy Dr. Guttman (Mordechai Ben Zeev), and his schlemiel assistant Hertzel (Gidi Gov). On the eighth episode, a peddler riding a horse-drawn cart arrives at Guttman’s apartment to hand him a closet that Guttman has ordered and is very excited about. Yoavi and his friends hang on to the cart and turn it into a game. Mr. Kook explains to Yoavi that it is dangerous to hang on a cart while in motion, because one can fall on the road. Guttman himself also receives a lesson on road safety from Mr. Kook, for scolding the children and causing them to get off the cart while moving.
