Tales of the Unexpected was a British television series that originally aired between 1979 and 1988, made by Anglia Television for ITV. The series was an anthology of different tales, initially based on short stories by author Roald Dahl, that were sometimes sinister, sometimes wryly comedic and usually had a twist ending.

In the first few series, Dahl included several stories which had previously been televised as Alfred Hitchcock Presents epsiodes.
