Be Our Guest was originally intended for Maurice
Another fun fact: Mickey’s PhilharMagic contains the original lyric “but for now, sir, eat up”, intended for Maurice. (As opposed to “now let’s eat up”, changed when they swapped Belle for her father.)
As a kid I always wondered why there was dancing beer in this song. Like. It seemed really masculine and out of place for something directed at a ~princess~. When I found out it was originally for Maurice it made so much more sense.
I love how their animations are so different, there’s little actions that show a lot of their personalities.
(Except Maurice is way cuter, LOOK AT THE CUPS CHILLING ON HIS HEAD<3)
Abubu Maurice in the last panel, what a cutie.
