I recall when I was a little girl going with my mother and one of my sisters to the local Turtles Movie Rental store to rent a movie. I chose Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas and have loved the movie ever since. My daughter was about two when we stumbled across a beaten up old VHS of the movie to add to our collection, but it only worked on the one VCR which is now broken (anyone have a VCR to give?!). Anyway! I am delighted that this year you can add the delightful Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas to your family library on DVD!!
