    Frogboy, they do it that way because, when shooting at 1.85:1, it's more expensive to shoot hard-matted (with black bars on the negative). So they shoot at the more squarish aspect ratio of 1.33:1, and cut off the top and bottom (which, most of the time, are never intended to be seen).

    That's if you're not counting The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth, which were both filmed at 2.35:1.

    I'm not counting them, Gymkata, because they weren't Muppet movies. They were Jim Henson movies.

    Actually, in Henson's Place, Jim says he considers them Muppets, but Muppets with a different look and feel. He said there was areas he could'nt deal with with the TMS Muppets, but it would work with new ones.

    Muppet = marionette + puppet. That would include, I'd say, most every cast member of The Dark Crystal, not to mention Labyrinth. I'm sure Jim thought of them as Muppets just like any other. Sorry to beat a dead horse, or even to argue about it. I hope I'm not arguing.
