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 sixth episode, Hagari and Yoav discover that Yehoyakim Kook is closing his shop and leaving the neighborhood. The children come to say goodbye to Kook, as well as Guttman and Hertzel. Mr. Kook tells the group that he is responsible for road traffic safety among children, and is now being transferred to fulfill his duties in Brazil, where there have been many accidents involving children lately. Kook shows Hagari and Yoav a gift album he prepared for them, summarizing all the incidents in which the children did not follow the traffic safety rules. The group accompanies Kook to the train tracks, where Kook boards a private railcart and drives off to Brazil.
