Continuity mistake: When Belle opens the bedroom door for Mrs. Potts and Chip, in the close-up the bottom corners of the doors are aligned perfectly with the edge of the floor tiles, when both doors are closed. Later, when Cogsworth comes in to announce dinner, the bottom corners of the doors are above the center of the tile, when the doors are closed. This should never change.
Continuity mistake: When the Beast discovers Belle in the West Wing, he starts yelling at her, and she backs into an old, rotting cupboard that sports many patterns and designs on it. Then when the shot changes the cupboard is suddenly new-looking and in good shape and has no patterns on it at all.
Continuity mistake: When the trolley cart comes screeching through the lounge and knocks Cogsworth down, you see that Mrs. Potts, Chip and the milk and sugar pot are on the cart. Then when it cuts, and the trolley screeches to a halt beside Maurice, who's sitting down, the milk and the sugar pot have vanished from the trolley. In addition, after Maurice takes a sip out of Chip the teacup, in the following shot of the trolley, a spoon has appeared on it.
Continuity mistake: Chip the teacup has his chip in the right side of the cup. However in the scene when Belle and the Beast are eating porridge, the Beast slurps his porridge, getting it all over himself, and it then cuts to Mrs. Potts and Chip turning to look at Belle, however in this shot Chip's chip is on the left side of the cup.
Continuity mistake: Whilst Maurice sits in the Masters chair, Cogsworth is knocked down by the trolley with Mrs. Potts on it, and he falls down on the large red part of the carpet. It then cuts to Mrs. Potts, then back to Cogsworth who is still lying down, however now he's suddenly lying on the white part of the rug.
Factual error: There's a scene where Belle's father is riding away in the snow on his horse - the tracks left behind by the horse are exactly backwards. The round part of a horseshoe is at the front, not the back. (This was a deliberate 'in joke' done by the animators.)
Continuity mistake: In the "Be Our Guest" song a brown dish with a spoon in it approaches Belle, but in the very next shot the spoon is gone.
Continuity mistake: When Gaston breaks that part of the castle off to hit Beast with it, that piece is rather short and stout (maybe 3 feet long). But a couple shots later when Beast grabs onto it, it seems to be a good 5 feet or so long and very thin.
Continuity mistake: After the scene when Gaston is talking to the Asylum-keeper, it then cuts to a wide view of Belle and Maurices house. There is clearly no snow by the wall of the stairs or on top of the water turbine. Then when Gaston and Le Fou search for Maurice and Belle and find the house empty, they leave, and then Gaston throws Le Fou into a large pile of snow by the wall, and there is also a very large pile of snow sitting on the water turbine, which has magically appeared, without it snowing.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Maurice is sitting next to the fireplace, there is a picture with a silver frame on one of the walls. But after the Beast has burst into the room, there is a shot of the chair Maurice is in, and the picture is now in a gold frame.
Continuity mistake: When Lefou runs out of the castle, he is missing one shoe. In the next shot, outside the castle, if you look closely he has both shoes on.
Continuity mistake: In the very short scene where the Beast throws Marice into the machine and it carries him away, the front entrance of the castle is utterly different from normal. For instance, normally there are no stairs leading up to the castle, the statues on either sides of the doors are different, the walls next to the entrance are shaped differently, and so on.
Audio problem: When the horse comes galloping into the meadow, Belle cries "Phillipe" but her lips don't match what she's saying.
Continuity mistake: At the very end, when all the objects change back into humans, the position of the roses on the walls in the background changes between shots.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where the villagers try to take away Maurice, the position of the vines over the cellar doors changes between shots.
Continuity mistake: When Belle goes to open the door for Gaston, her chair is close to the carpet on the floor. Then when the shot returns to this area, the chair is much further from the carpet.
