Still the only hand drawn animated feature
* The fact that this is the ''first'' '''ever''' ''animated movie to be nominated for Best Picture.'' Sure it didn't win, but it did what was considered to be impossible for animation at the time and establish it as a medium of story-telling and not [[AnimationAgeGhetto kid fodder]].

* And that goes double for Howard Ashman, Menken's songwriting partner since practically the start of his musical career. Some time before ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' won Oscars for Best Song and Best Score, Ashman was diagnosed as HIV-positive. When he was put to work for ''Beauty and the Beast'', Ashman was noted to be irritable and would soon not even be able work in the studio. But did he give up on his work? HELL NO! He would instruct recording sessions via telephone even when he was weak and he wrote what are probably some of the most memorable songs in cinema, period, during the last year of his life (the title song's lyrics undoubtedly being his MagnumOpus). Even though he never lived to see the finished film, Ashman's sheer dedication to his work counts as this trope, a TearJerker, and a great SugarWiki/{{Heartwarming Moment|s}}. The dedication at the end of the film states he 'gave a mermaid her voice and a beast his soul'.

** Also a Moment of Heartwarming, Belle's fear of Beast apparently disappears after he saves her. He roars right in her face when she accidentally aggravates his wounds and she doesn't even flinch. Heck, she talks back to him as he complains.

** Also a Moment of Heartwarming, Belle's fear of Beast apparently disappears after he saves her. He roars right in her face when she accidentally aggravates his wounds and she doesn't even flinch. Heck, she talks back to him as he complains. Probably because the wold fight shows her that for all of his tantrums he could never and would never actually hurt her.

** It's even better after hearing Human Again; the Wardrobe sings about how, when she's human, she'll be ''able to fit through that door''... yet she's at the front of the crowd of objects as they march; presumably, she has been informed the battle is coming and has ''smashed her way out of Belle's bedroom''.

** Hell, the entire castle siege in general was amazing, considering it was an angry mob of simple-minded townsfolk armed with torches and pitchforks against an entire castle of servants transformed into ordinary household objects who turn out to be NotSoHarmless. You try and fight against drawers of living cutlery, a hat rack with incredible boxing skills, a pile-driving wardrobe, a cannibal chest, and an ApronMatron teapot who utilizes her tea cup children into ''scalding'' people.

** Preceding all that? Just as the VillainSong ends and they break in, it's quiet and dark, almost too much so (the villagers even seem a little suspicious) - still, they keep moving slowly, with LeFou grabbing a 'mere' candlebra to see...

Moved to proper disambiguated work title.
![[Series/BeautyAndTheBeast The TV Series]] * By the end of the third season, Vincent finally confronts Gabriel, [[spoiler:Cathrine's killer and his son's kidnapper]]. Despite the shit he's done towards Vincent, he spares his life. And this is Vincent, who pretty much killed half the villains of the week for the first season (though he had a HeroicBSOD when he killed someone in the second season), so it was a pretty awesome closure to his development. Even more awesome? After he leaves, [[spoiler:''Diana'' is the one who kills Gabriel after he flat out tells her that he'll just get away scot free. Diana even uses Cathrine's own gun for the killing!]]

* Gaston's rousing song in the bar is awesome [[AwesomeEgo in it's own right]]. It's nothing but 2-3 minutes of him and the townspeople claiming BadassBoast after BadassBoast and as we all know, [[MemeticBadass no one strokes his ego like Gaston]].

** Even better, Chip was helpless to help Belle when she confronted the village, but the moment he saw that ax, he essentially saved his master's life, as without Belle, the beast would have been killed by Gaston.

Added namespaces.
** The Oscar for Best Animated Feature was added a decade later. Some have speculated that the Academy added this category specifically to ''prevent'' animated movies from having a shot at the Best Picture award. And it ''[[{{Up}} didn't]] [[ToyStory3 work.]]''
