!Oka Tokat is a Philippine paranormal drama which originally aired on ABS-CBN from June 24, 1997 to May 7, 2002 every Tuesday night. It starred Ricky Davao, Diether Ocampo, Jericho Rosales, Angelika Dela Cruz, Rica Peralejo, Paolo Contis and Agot Isidro. Its title is the reverse spelling of the phrase Takot ako! (I'm scared!); hence, the exclamation point at the beginning. In 2001, the series was reformatted and it starred by the several child stars. It was the longest-running horror series on Philippine television.[3]

The show revolves around a media crew led by Rona del Fierro (played by Isidro) who investigate paranormal cases with the help del Fierro's premonitions. Most of the story arcs feature creatures in Filipino mythology, including the dwende (dwarf), tikbalang, diwata and the engkanto.

It was re-aired on ABS-CBN's cable channel, Jeepney TV.
