Belle's continuing friendship with the Beast unfolds in this series of three tales set during the period before Belle's departure from the castle and his subsequent transformation. Each tale has a moral lesson, as well as plenty of entertainment and enchantment. In one, Belle and the Beast get into an argument because of a simple misunderstanding, and they must figure out a way to resolve their dispute. Another story is less focused on the main characters as it deals primarily with Lumiere and his girlfriend, Fifi. The two of them try to arrange a romantic date, but given their condition as a candelabra and a feather duster, that isn't so easy. Finally, Belle encourages Beast to free a bird he's been nursing back to health.
