Continuity mistake: It is said that the magical rose will start to wither until the Beast's 21st birthday, and in the song 'Be our Guest', everyone sings "It's ten years since we've had anybody here, and we're obsessed". So that would make the Beast only 11 years old when he turned away the Enchantress that put a spell on him, however he is portrayed as being much older-looking.
Continuity mistake: Cogsworth's height as a human keeps changing in the final minute or so of the film. For instance, when he first transforms from a clock into a man, he comes up to about half of Lumiere's head, but when they argue, Cogsworth is taller than that. Then in the last shot, as it zooms out as Belle and the prince are dancing, he doesn't even come up to Lumiere's shoulders.
Continuity mistake: When the Beast briefly dies at the end of the film, before being turned human, Belle cries and lays down on his chest, with her head resting on his red cape and her hand clutching it. However when it cuts to a closeup, Belle's head is suddenly resting further down, on his white shirt, and she is clutching the shirt now too instead of the cape.
Continuity mistake: In the kitchen, the stove says "I work and I slave all day long, and for what?" and the stone wall behind him is bare. Then when it cuts to a close-up of him saying "A culinary masterpiece gone to waste," two shelves have suddenly appeared on the wall behind him, with pots, pans and utensils on them!
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: When Gaston climbs out of the muddy puddle, he storms off, and it shows Belle's house in a wideshot, with the stone walls surrounding the porch with nothing on them. Then it cuts to a closeup of Belle emerging from the door, but now there's a bucket of seed, and some chickens on the walls.
Deliberate mistake: During the Gaston song in the tavern, Gaston is wearing a pull over shirt with no buttons in front. At one point in the song he rips open his shirt to show off the hair on his chest. The very next second, however, his shirt is back to normal. The shirt is not ripped or disheveled, and it is completely unscathed as if it had never been ripped open or torn apart.
Continuity mistake: Outside Belle's house there is a wishing well situated on the grass directly in front of the window and cellar doors, plainly seen in the initial shot of Belle leaving her home to go to town. However in the scene where Chip gets Maurices woodcutter going, as it hurtles towards the cellar doors in a wideshot, the wishing well has vanished!!
