Disney's Beauty and the Beast:
Just a little change
Small, to say the least
Both a little scared
Neither one prepared
Beauty and the Beast

The Disney franchise centered around their 1991 animated adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, which was their first property to have EGOTed and—to date—the only one to have done so with a Primetime Emmy.

  • Sing Me A Story With Belle (1995-1997), set in the bookshop in the village, which Belle now appears to run herself. Belle is played in live-action by Lynsey McLeod, and her segments serve as a framing device for the presentation of musical shorts produced by Disney. Gaston appears in one episode.
  • Once Upon a Time (2011-2018), in which Belle and the Beast, who in this continuity is Rumplestiltskin, are major characters. Other characters and elements of the franchise are referenced or appear in smaller roles, such as Gaston and the Enchanted Rose.
