Continuity mistake: Just before the new "Human Again" song, Cogsworth is telling the other servants what to do. He is standing on the dog/footstool and tells everyone to clean up the castle. All the servants run off including the dog/footstool and Cogsworth falls down the stairs. A load of cogs fall out of him and Lumiere picks one up. It is quite small but as he dusts it off it grows and when he hands it to Cogsworth and it has grown in size again to over double the size it was when it first fell out of him.julie sheridan
