Ang Mahiwagang Baul is a Filipino live-action children’s television anthology series retelling popular Philippine myths, legends and folktales. It headlines Eissen bayubay and Sandy Talag as siblings Epoy and Jewel, respectively, and Carme Sanchez as Lola Tacia who also serves as the story teller/narrator. The series was followed by another series called Mga Kuwento ni Lola Basyang which followed the same format as Ang Mahiwagang Baul and focused on the classic tales created by Severino Reyes.
Ang Mahiwagang Baul was originally slated for just seven episodes and considered only as filler, but the network awarded several extensions because of impressive viewership ratings and the positive feedback from the viewers.

Reruns of episodes aired on Q from year 2008 to 2010. Q's successor GMA News TV currently airs the reruns of the show since 2011. Some episodes also available on DVD.
