As many watched the final episode on network television of All My Children, this past Friday, a few weeks earlier the cast taped their last scenes.  After the curtain came down, the cast gathered for some very emotional moments with AMC creator, Agnes Nixon who read her famous AMC signature lines, sang a song befitting of the moment, and toasted with the cast for a job well-done for 41 years of outstanding drama.

Surrounded by the likes of Susan Lucci (Erica) and David Canary (Adam/Stuart), Nixon was front and center and given her due by the final cast of the show, and some of the returning veterans.  In addition, a one of a kind cake was brought out that had the cast in sheer awe! Richard Ruskell, the pastry chef from the Montage in Beverly Hills, California, and the winner from a past season of Last Cake Standing donated the historic cake. A  big fan of the show, Ruskell had been working on it for over a month. It was a true work of art.

After the jump, view some final images from the cast gathering on the final day of taping as they said their goodbyes, and celebrated their achievements!

Still can’t believe its finished on TV after 41 years. That one hour seems very odd now! These are lovely pictures and i am hoping that most (including Susan) will return!

Really?????? I am so tired of Susan Luce Susan Luce Susan Luce. Yes, her body and face have got it all for the age she is, but the last few shows of her looking up to the sky at Hollywood and Vine with the wonderment and amazement of a new fresh young actress was almost too much to bear. I understand soaps are fantasy but sometimes you just need to reel in these writers and ask them if this is a ‘serious moment” or a laughable one. And then the Rhett Butler act at the end just took me over the edge.

It was one of the most memorable moments in my “daytime” life. Making the cake for All My Children was an honor. Also, back in the day i was an under-five when AMC was in NYC. I delivered a pizza to Jesse and Jenny when they were hanging out in NYC at Mrs. Gonzalez’s

WATCH: All My Children Reunion On Strahan & Sara

On Monday’s episode of ABC’s Strahan & Sara, the show welcomed several stars of the beloved All My Children for a reunion, of sorts. Joining hosts Michael Strahan and Sara Haines were Susan Lucci (Erica), Walt Willey (Jack), Cady McClain (Dixie), Jacob Young (JR) and Jill Larson (Opal).

While it was wonderful to see the stars from Pine Valley again, it was also a painful reminder that this network, ABC, canceled the show, and had put in its place – The Chew, and now Strahan & Sara – since canning the series.   In fact, as you will see on the clips below, many of the crew who work on this talk show were once the crew for All My Children.

During the segment, Susan Lucci was tested to see if she remembered all of Erica Kane’s wedded names.  Later, Walt Willey and Susan re-created the final scene of the ABC version of All My Children between Erica and Jack, where Jack walks out on her.  However, this time, they have Jack changing his mind and coming back to Erica and sealing their relationship with a kiss – a moment of closure that never happened (since the show moved to online via Prospect Park).

In addition, Cady McClain and Jacob Young re-created the infamous Dixie “dying from eating poison pancakes” scene, as JR watches his mother die, only this time she lives.

It’s always great to see these veteran performers, but Strahan & Sara is trying to capture the soap viewers to put eyeballs on their show by bringing in talent from the show that sadly and wrongly went off the air.

Watch the clips below from the All My Children reunion below.  Then, let us know what you thought of it via the comment section below.
