YMMV / Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas

  • Accidental Innuendo: Fife's "I'd do anything for a solo!" Made worse by his voice actor being Paul Reubens. Forte's response to this line is not helping. Just the way Tim Curry says it. "Yes... I know."
  • Awesome Music: Belle's song, "Stories". It's hard not to be inspired by her determination to help him be a better person, especially as it ties back to the Romeo and Juliet scene from "Human Again". ("We will slay the dragons that still follow him around/And he'll smile, yes, he'll smile/As his dreams leave the ground...") It's also one of the best deliveries of the Reading Is Cool Aesop extant, and the animation is unique and memorable thanks to the Art Shift. There's a reason it was included in the opening titles overture and became the film's Leitmotif, even more than "As Long as There's Christmas".
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment:
  • Evil Is Cool: Forte is considered one of the better Disney sequel villains due to his design and being voiced by Tim Curry
  • Fridge Horror: What state must Forte be in after everyone is turned human again? Did he stay a smashed up pipe organ or is he a bloody pile of assorted body parts?
  • Jerkass Woobie: All Forte wanted was to be useful to the Beast and becoming his best friend , a thing he probably never was when he was human.
  • Memetic Mutation: "I'M BOLTED TO THE WALL!"
  • Nightmare Fuel:
    • Forte the Pipe Organ is rather creepy, mostly due to his empty eyes.
      • Compounding the empty eye problem was the camera always panning really, really close to his face. When that empty-eyed face takes up the whole screen, it's very, very creepy.
      • His death was creepy, with Beast personally killing him.
      • Everything about him is creepy. From his ability to casually destroy the castle, to the fact that he will die if his bolts come loose from the wall, to... everything about him.
    • As if the flashback scene where we get to see the prince get turned into the Beast isn't bad enough, the Enchantress's true form manages to be both a stunningly beautiful and terrifying bit of animation (her cold face and empty eyes are the kickers), only aided by Kath Soucie's wonderful voice work. The idea of actually seeing the the Prince physically transform into the Beast was one of the late Howard Ashman's original ideas for the original film, which was rejected. Perhaps it would've been better not to reinstate that detail even if Howard had originally wanted it (unlike the reinsertion of the song "Human Again.").
  • Rescued from the Scrappy Heap: For some, when Angelique realized and admitted Belle was right, and sang the reprise of "As Long As There's Christmas."
  • The Scrappy: Angelique. All she does is wangsting.
  • Sequelitis: Well, midquelitis, anyway. It's kind of hard to go from the pinnacle of the entire Renaissance to a film that can be summed up as "Belle and the Beast defeat an evil gay organ and save Christmas."
  • Tastes Like Diabetes: With lines like "Christmas, that year was spent exchanging humble gifts, but the greatest gift that anyone received was the gift of hope."
  • Wangst: Most of it comes from Beast and Angelique.
