Continuity mistake: In the tavern, which is the setting for the 'Gaston' song, right at the end of the bar there is a thick wooden beam attached to the bar and the ceiling. You can see this beam clearly when Le Fou sings "No-one's slick as Gaston...", and he prances around and then grabs the beam. However, right at the end of the Gaston song when they sing "So his marriage we soon will be celebrating...", the camera pans backwards out to the window, but the wooden beam has vanished.

Continuity mistake: In the newer version of the film, there has been a new song called "Human Again" added. When the little dog-like footrest runs across the hallway, chasing the cat-like cushion, he leaves black footprints all over the floor, and then he skids to a halt, leaving circular swerve marks over part of the floor. However when it cuts to an overhead shot, the line of footprints along the floor runs much shorter and there are now more sets of swerve marks. (00:57:25)
