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."
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The song "A Cut Above The Rest" comes right out of nowhere and stops as soon as The Beast enters.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Belle's song, "Stories". Despite the Unfortunate Implications made toward her being a Love Martyr, 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".
  • 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 causally destroy the castle, to the fact that he will die if his bolts come loose from the wall, to... everything about him.
  • The Scrappy: Angelique. All she does is wangsting.
  • Sequelitis: Well, midquelitis, anyway. It's kind of hard to go from the arguable Magnum Opus 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.
