Synopsis: 

 

Beauty and the Beast tells the tale of the handsome prince who having fallen foul of the evil Weed, is transformed into a hideous beast. Ashamed of his appearance he hides away, but one day accidentally meets a georgeous girl called Beauty. At first she is scared of the Beast, but she soon learns that he is kind and gentle and falls in love with him. This breaks the Weeds evil spell and the Beast turns back into the hansome Prince, who marries Beauty and they live happily ever after.
