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 second episode, Yoav tries to convince his sister Hagar that Mr. Kook is a magician, but Hagar doubts her little brother. The children visit Mr. Kook’s shop, and as they exit the door, they suddenly find themselves on an unfamiliar street corner, and cross the road not at a designated crosswalk. Magically the children find themselves again in Mr. Kook’s shop, as he explains to the children how important it is to cross the road only at a crosswalk. Hagar is now convinced that Mr. Kook is indeed a magician.
