Continuity mistake: At the end of the 'Something There' song, Belle is sitting at the fireplace and Beast hangs her coat up on a stand. Next to the coatstand you can see a bookcase with a statue on top of it.

Continuity mistake: In the slightly changed version with the song 'Human Again' added, when Cogworth, Mrs. Potts, Chip etc. are talking about there being "Something there that wasn't there before...", just after the "Something There" song, In this scene Chip's chip is in the left side of his cup.

Continuity mistake: When Maurice is being chased by the wolves, he runs up to the gates of the Beast's castle and grabs the bars. You can see in a wideshot that he is holding the bars around the area of the patterned strip of the gate.

Continuity mistake: When Gaston comes to Belle's house to propose to her, you can notice that he leaves the door open, but when he backs Belle against it, the door has magically shut.
