Once Upon a Time in the City of New York ...

a dream was born. 

A dream that still lives today


Welcome to CABB, The Classic Alliance of Beauty and the Beast.  This site features information about the Beauty and the Beast television series, fanfiction, artwork, and other creative efforts inspired by the show, and ways that you can interact with the fandom and become a part of the community.  

CBS aired the pilot episode of Beauty and the Beast, starring Linda Hamilton and Ron Perlman, on September 25, 1987.   This reimagining of the classic fairy tale immediately won the hearts of viewers, many of whom remain dedicated fans today.  Since it's original airing, long-time followers as well as newcomers just now discovering the show for the first time keep the dream alive by holding the show's theme of love and hope close to their hearts. 

This site is dedicated to the Classic Beauty and the Beast fandom.  Classic fans are those who prefer to ignore the events of the show's third season in favor of a universe in which Vincent and Catherine are still together and the dream continues ....
