Over time, Belle and the Beast becomes good friends.

Shortly after the clean-up, The household items are excited and optimistic that Belle may fall in love with the Beast and cause them to become human again. The relationship reaches its climax with an elegant dinner and ballroom dance. Sadly, when she tells him how much she misses her father and when he allows her to see him using his magic mirror, he lets her go to find him. This horrifies the objects, who fear they will never be human again, as well as Yogi Bear and his friends, who worked so hard to help the Beast overcome his torment and his anger. Beast tells Cogsworth that he let her go because he loves her. Everyone leaves to find Maurice and bring him back to the cottage.
Gaston and Dastardly arrive shortly with an angry mob. Unless she agrees to marry Gaston, the manager of the local madhouse will lock her father, Yogi, and the gang up. Eventually, Belle proves Maurice sane by showing them the Beast with the magic mirror. When Belle says the Beast is her friend and calls Gaston a "monster", he becomes jealous. Gaston arouses the mob's anger against the Beast, and leads them to the castle to kill him. He and Dastardly lock Belle, Maurice and the others in the basement, though Chip, who had hidden himself in Belle's baggage, is able to chop the basement door apart with Maurice's machine.
While the servants drive the mob out of the castle, Gaston, Dastardly, and Muttley find the Beast and attack them. The Beast is initially too depressed to fight back, but he regains his will when he sees Belle and the others returning to the castle with Maurice. After winning a heated battle, the Beast spares Gaston's life, demanding that he leave the castle and never return. The Beast then climbs up to a balcony where Belle is waiting. Gaston, refusing to admit defeat, follows the Beast and stabs him from behind. Gaston, meanwhile, loses his balance and falls to his death. Suddenly, Yogi forces Dastardly and Muttley to leave the castle, but he refuses. And also, Peter and Wally blasts Dastarldy and Muttley off with the cannon.
While the Beast are dying from his injuries, Belle whispers that she loves him, breaking the spell just before the last petal drops from the rose. Also, the Beast comes back to life and he becomes human again. As he and Belle kiss, the castle and its grounds return to their beautiful, previous state while the servants become human again. The film ends as Belle and the prince dance in the ballroom with her father, Yogi Bear, Boo-Boo, and his gang and the humanized servants happily watching.
