** Rupert Everett auditioned for the role of Gaston, but was told by the directors he didn't sound arrogant enough. He remembered this when he voiced Prince Charming in ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek 2}}''.

(He ''did'' end up playing a villain in a Disney movie, though- as Sanford Scolex/Dr. Claw in the 1999 ''Film/InspectorGadget'' adaptation.)

** Jeffery Katzenberg loved the "Beauty and the Beast Song" so much that he wanted it at least doubled in length, but Howard Ashman shot down the idea for the simple reason that he had run out of suitable words that rhymed with "beast" to use.



** Jeffery Katzenberg loved the title song so much that he asked Howard Ashman to write a third verse to it. After a week of trying, Ashman told him "[[LeastRhymableWord The only other things that I could rhyme with "beast" were "yeast" and "Diane Wiest]]."

* Naturally, since this film was deemed an "instant classic", it was the last of the four movies released under the WaltDisneyHomeVideo/WaltDisneyClassics [[Creator/WaltDisneyHomeVideo label]] in 1992, one year after its theatrical release and a little bit before ''Aladdin's'' release (the other movies that year were ''Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians, Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective, and Disney/TheRescuers'' (the original 1977 film). This tape's program is a shortened 1991 green F.B.I. warning, a handwritten bumper saying "Coming to Movie Theaters", the ''Aladdin'' theatrical trailer, a reissue trailer for ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'' dated the following spring (this was cancelled between this tape's release and then), another handwritten bumper saying, "Stay tuned after the feature", the lilac-blue cursive "Feature Presentation" screen, the 1992 distorted Sorcerer Mickey Walt Disney Classics logo, the 1990 Walt Disney Pictures logo, and the film; the film is followed by a home video trailer for ''101 Dalmatians'', and some copies have a ''Disney/{{Pinocchio}}'' reissue trailer either in between the faux ''Sleeping Beauty'' trailer and the Classics logo, or between the film's ending credits and the ''Dalmatians'' trailer. The demo tape has no trailers and contained the 1988 Classics logo with non-distorted music before the WDP logo, while the LaserDisc with the original aspect ratio AND color scheme, along with the "Work-in-progress" NYFF LD cut, don't have the Classics logo, instead opening with the animation-standard 1986 Sorcerer Mickey Walt Disney Home Video logo.

** There was also ''WesternAnimation/FelixTheCatTheMovie'' that limped into theaters a few months prior, and this movie blasted that one apart as well.

* RecycledTheSeries: For a short time, there was a live-action TV show starring Belle, a talking cat puppet and a bunch of modern day kids as she would read books to them, which were really ClassicDisneyShorts with her dubbing over all the songs. It had nothing to do with Beauty and the Beast besides Belle. (Although Gaston would make a few appearances, albeit being much LighterAndSofter.)

* TheyJustDidntCare: Despite sparing no expense in designing the Beast, the animators openly admit that they put little effort in designing his human form since they knew the audience had already endeared themselves to the Beast's monster form and wouldn't care what he looked liked as a human. Most infamously, the production team forgot to give the Beast a real name.

* DevelopmentHell: Walt himself had tried to develop an adaptation of this story back in the 1940s, but no one could figure out how to make the second act (the heroine's stay in the castle) work.
