Continuity mistake: In the newer version on VHS by Disney, including the song 'Human Again', that added scene completely messes with the movie.

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. (00:15:00)

Continuity mistake: The brightness of the yellow quivers of Gaston's arrows change during the final scenes. For instance, when he's outside and yells "But remember, the beast is mine!" they are quite dark yellow, but as he puts one in his quiver to shoot the beast, they are bright yellow.

Continuity mistake: When the Beast brings Belle into the library, the axis on the globe goes all the way through. A few seconds later, the globe is shown again, and now the axis only goes halfway up the globe.

Continuity mistake: When the Beast first shows Belle into her room, when he leaves you can see the doors have a curvy, spirally pattern which leads down the them. But when Belle is up in her room crying and Mrs. Potts comes to her door, Belle then approachs the door and we see the design on the door is now two large squares. However in the following shot of Mrs. Potts entering, saying "I thought you might like a spot of tea", the design has changed back to the curvy, spirally pattern. (00:24:45 - 00:30:15)

Audio problem: When the coathanger plays the violin during the title song, the sounds that are heard don't match him playing it.

Continuity mistake: When Belle and Beast raise their bowls, the oatmeal on the table has vanished.

Other mistake: After Lefou is stabbed in the butt by Cogsworth, there is no hole in his pants. This is impossible, since the scissors did pierce him.

Continuity mistake: During the brawl between the villagers and the objects, Lefou holds a torch in front of Lumiere. Wax drips down all over his face. In the next shot of Lumiere, the wax is gone.

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.
