General Hospital will be celebrating its 50th anniversary next week, and we have an exclusive first look of one of the show's surprises.
For the April 1 and April 2 episodes, ABC will air a special version of the opening credits, which features an astonishing composite of past opens from the classic soap.
Watch the clip for this astonishing walk through half a century of television history.
As a part of the anniversary celebration the show is also reprising the immensely popular Nurses Ball -- the fictional charity event complete with musical performances from the citizens of Port Charles -- dedicated to HIV/Aids awareness.
General Hospital airs weekdays at 2 p.m. ET /1 p.m. PT/CT.
