Wansapanataym (Filipinisation of the English phrase once upon a time) is a Philippine fantasy-drama anthology produced and aired by ABS-CBN. The series aired in 1997 until 2005, then re-aired from 2006 to 2007. On September 11, 2010, the series aired again on ABS-CBN's weekend primetime block with new episodes, and remakes of past episodes.


The series was launched in 1997, then was moved to a weekend primetime slot until February 27, 2005, having genre similarities with ABS-CBN Foundation-produced education program Hirayamanawari (which features Filipino short stories for children) and another 1980's series "Pinoy Fantasy." On May 8, 2006, the show was re-aired on weekday mornings until 2007. A film was also produced based on the series' genre, which starred Shaina Magdayao, Serena Dalrymple and Christopher de Leon.

Judy Ann Santos and the late Rico Yan graced the first episode of this program. In 2004, the series had two child characters (Nash Aguas and Sharlene San Pedro) and a magical book inside the chest in every prologue and epilogue of the show.
