Only now does it occur to me... BEAUTY AND THE BEAST

Only now does it occur to me... that a century before The Thing awakened in Antarctica (as depicted  in John Carpenter's version of THE THING) that it must have ravaged provincial France. As this clip below demonstrates, The Beast's enchanted carriage (as seen in Disney's 1991 BEAUTY AND THE BEAST) sounds eerily similar (i.e., exactly the same) to The Thing in Carpenter's film.
This means that by the end of the Disney film, 100% of the characters are The Thing, and therefore explains the rapid shape-shifting and perfect imitations (of animate and inanimate objects) observed throughout. It also explains the bad attitude of the neighboring wolves/wild dogs, who react to The Beast in a similar manner as Clark's dogs do with The Thing. There's probably even a deleted scene where the wardrobe opens up, severs a man's arms, and The Beast's head crawls away on spider legs.
