** Of note is that much of the merchandise released by Mattel used the name "Prince Adam" on the packaging as a way of reusing a trademark from Franchise/MastersOfTheUniverse to keep it active while the MOTU brand wasn't being produced, as trademarks can expire quickly if not kept in use. This was a deliberate case of NamesTheSame by the company that owned the trademark.

** Music/DonnyOsmond was considered for the role of Gaston. Osmond would later go onto play Gaston in the stage version of Beauty and the Beast. Creator/PatrickSwayze was also considered as well. Amusingly, had Swayze been cast, he would have been reunited with his fellow ''Film/DirtyDancing'' co-star Creator/JerryOrbach, who had already been cast as Lumiere. Rupert Everett auditioned for the role, 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.)

** "Human Again", animated and inserted into the 2002 IMAX reissue after it had already appeared in the stage musical. "Something There" replaced it in the original cut to remove interludes of the Enchanted Objects tracking ambiguously long periods of time for Belle and the Beast to fall in love, which the writers decided would make viewers worry for Maurice's safety during his off-screen search for Belle (the play and the Extended Version use versions of "Human Again" that edit out these interludes). Jeffrey Katzenberg also ordered "Human Again" removed because he felt it was "redundant". The 3D conversion and the 25th Anniversary Edition DVD cut it back out again.[[note]]The 25th Anniversary Edition Blu-Ray and Digital HD copy still have the option to put it back in, but play the movie without it by default.[[/note]]

* FollowTheLeader: Between this and ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'', almost all Western animated features, Disney or not, that followed until ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' came along four years later were fairy tale musicals (the big exception being ''Disney/TheLionKing'', [[Manga/KimbaTheWhiteLion which]] [[Theatre/{{Hamlet}} wasn't]] FairyTale-based).
