Just like the movies. The good one.

Beauty and the Beast is a 1991 film produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation and based off a 1756 French fairy tale of the same name.

It centers around a prince who is magically cursed into the form of a beast for his rude and unkind behavior. His only chance to be normal is to fall in love with another and to earn the person's (Belle, the character referred to in the title as Beauty) love as well.

The movie had several sequel films and tie-ins set in the middle of the film, including a short-lived series by Marvel Comics.

Goliath and Elisa Maza's Halloween dance was influenced in part by the 1991 film, to the point of Elisa's Halloween costume being the dress worn by Belle. ("Eye of the Beholder") [1][2][3]

A deleted scene from "Hunter's Moon" Part Three, showed Elisa finding a picture taken from her wearing the dress during "Eye of the Beholder" in the wreckage of the clock tower.

The story title of Gargoyles #4, "Tale Old as Time", is a reference to the song "Tale as Old as Time". The removal of the first "as" was requested by Disney for reasons unspecified. [4]

When summing up Elisa's relationship to Goliath, Dracon says "That Beauty's sweet on that Beast". ("Render Unto Caesar")


Similar to the scene where Gaston is searching for the Beast among some gargoyle statues on the castle rooftop, the Pack are trying to find Goliath and Lexington among its gargoyle statues. ("The Thrill of the Hunt")
