Was anyone watching PBS in the early 90's? Help me find my childhood, and a Beauty and the Beast short television program!

I have very few clear memories from when I was a kid. But one of them stands out distinctly in my mind.
One morning, I was watching a television show, on PBS. The show was an animated, black and white telling of Beauty and the Beast. It was the classic story, with a maze, a huge mansion, and a ring that can transport the girl around, and I believe the Beast died in the center of the maze at the end. If I remember correctly, the animation was done "Reading Rainbow" style, where there were still illustrations that the camera moved across dynamically. This actually led me to believe that I was remembering an episode of Reading Rainbow, but I can't find a book on Amazon that fits my memory.
Does anyone know what I'm talking about? I have become obsessed with finding this, and IMdB and Google are no help.
