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). The first episode introduces Yoav as he dangerously crosses the road while fleeing from Dr. Guttman, and finds a hiding place in the magician Kooks room. In response, magician Kook teaches Yoav how to safely cross the road through a projection of the Enchanted Eye.
