     There’s my favorite song again at 8:50. May I ask you where you found that one?

    Ummm…Good Times?

    The original “Beauty and the Beast” fairy tale/story was written by Jeanne-Marie Le Prince Beaumont, NOT by the Grimm Brothers. The Grimm Brothers have NOTHING to do with it.

    As an aside, the Good Times version of “Alice in Wonderland” is just as good as the Disney version, with decent growth scenes, great giantess scenes, and even a trial scene that is far more accurate to the book than the Disney version.

    That Beast looks like Pegleg Pete.

    Ah, the infinite joys of Disney rip-offs. My heart is pure too, you know? Ahem, anyway… no offense, but while I did like the review thus far, I just have to ask: did a 48 minute runtime really warrant a two-part review?

      So it’d have been ok if I didn’t tell you the runtime?

      If I write enough that I feel I want to break it into 2 parts I will, which is usually if the review will be around or over 40 mins which this one will.

        The back story of Goodtimes Home Video was a nice touch, and warrants the extended run time on this review. As far as budget labels go, they were surely a heavy hitter of the VHS era (during which I grew up), so it’s always fun hearing about them. These guys went from being a small company with sparsely-packaged public domain films, to debuting original content by Hanna-Barbera, Jim Henson, and the Rankin-Bass Rudolph characters. Oh, and Fabio. Good times, indeed.

    To be honest though, I sort of like Beauty’s character design, they just kind of wasted it. If they would have given her a slacker personality and some witty retort it wouldn’t have been so bad.

      (The comment system seems to have eaten my reply. Oh well, at least I tried.)

      I can see that. She looks better than anyone else, almost like she belongs into a different movie. Wouldn’t really surprise me if her character designer didn’t really have anything to do with the rest. Gotta keep the costs down and all.

      She also reminds me of those European-Japanese co-productions from the 70’s and 80’s, where characters had that slight tint of the nowadays more pronounced “anime style” – if that makes any sense.

    man, no matter how many times I have seen your most recent reviews, they are still funny. I find myself quoting your “my god” line from the Lion & The King review more often.

    maybe you should consider reviewing some episodes of Fairy Tale Theater since it was live action and some episodes were even better than the Disney film. for example, Aladdin & His Wonderful Lamp I find to be better than the Disney film since it did feature Aladdin & his mother and instead of Robin Williams as The Genie, you had James Earl Jones playing both the genie from the lamp & the genie from the ring. so, yes apparently there are 2 genies in the story. even as a kid I liked that version better.

    you know, it just occurred to me that when The Beast is yelling in this movie, he almost sounds like Eyedol from Killer Instinct.

    watch this review again, watch any scene with The Beast being angry and/or yelling, and then watch this video clip. and you’ll see what I mean.

    also, The Beast looks like an extremely lame version of the Pig Cop from Duke Nukem 3D.

    I think that your take on the character of the father might just be the most brilliant thing you’ve ever done. I laugh every time I think about him. Absolutely hysterical. Very well done.

    So I’m looking at other animations produced by by Golden Films. Hit & miss. The Wizard of Oz one uses the MGM Dorothy right down to the voice, but looks like it follows the source material better than the movie did, the Thumbelina with the Nutcracker is pretty original & gives the girl a backstory, they also avoid using the redhaired Disney mermaid but still give her the Disney happy ending, but based on their online steaming trailers….Treasure Island & Snow White seems to have terrible choppy framerates, as if there was missing in-between animation.

    Well it’s not like “Belle” isn’t just “beautiful” in another language. It’s from the “call the dragon Draco” school of laziness.

    And history was made this day as the derpy Old Man joined Phelous’ Cast of characters and became a smash hit with fans.

    Does anyone know what the context is for the “is that supposed to scare me?” joke at 13:00?
