An episode of the classic children’s television show “The Magic Door” (Delet Haksamim), produced by the Israeli Film Service in collaboration with the Ministry of Transportation, the Ministry of Education, and the National Council for the Prevention of Road Accidents, 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 Ze’ev), and his schlemiel assistant Hertzel (Gidi Gov). On the third episode, Yoav and Hagar jump onto the road while playing ball, but suddenly they disappear from the street and find themselves in Mr. Kook’s magic shop. In the shop, they each enter an endless maze of doors and get lost. The children call Mr. Kook for help, and Kook releases them out of the maze. Back at the shop, Kook explains to the children why their behavior was dangerous, and the children learn that one should not cross a road from behind parked cars nor run to the road.
