Comment on the Height of Ted Danson

Rob, could he have peaked at 6ft3?

He still looks 189cm now.
[Editor Rob: he could appear near 6ft 3 at times]
James B said on 24/Aug/15
If he's still 189cm range today rob then he must have been 190cm in his prime

On Cheers, Danson wore very flat boat shoes putting him at a disadvantage to most others on the show. Especially considering that, he was at least 6'2.5" peak.

Click Here Perhaps no downgrade after all :-) Must be the angle in that other one!
Arch Stanton said on 22/May/15
Rob, can you add a photo and downgrade from peak? Check out this with Noonan, Click Here That's a lot more than 2.5 inches!! Looking 6'1" range there, even with angle and perhaps a little footwear disadvantage.
[Editor Rob: I don't know, I think on CSI he had comfortable 4 inches on someone like Wallace langham who is close to 5ft 10...]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Apr/15
Looking identical to Ed Begley Jr. (6ft4) and Dennis Haysbert (6ft4)

Rob, what's your take?
[Editor Rob: I don't know if that ground is level? But 1-1.5 inches difference at times could look closer.]

Cast of "Cheers":

Ted Danson- 6'2" (on show claimed 6'3"-height in shoes-??)
Kelsey Grammar- 6' (maybe just a tad over-??)
Woody Harrelson- 5'9.5" (claimed 6 feet on the show once)
John Ratzenberger- 5'8.5"
George Wendt- 5'8.5"

Danson looked at least a couple inches on an episode of "Frasier", and I think Grammer is a solid 6'1". So 6'3 sounds about right.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Oct/14
188cm is too low for his peak.
Gonzalo said on 3/Jun/14
In a Cheers episode he was towered by John Cleese, but Mr. Cleese is around 1`95-96. Danson looks at least 188. I remember him being clearly taller than Tom Hanks in Save private Ryan

I can buy a weak 6'3 for a younger ted damson. I wouldn't go higher than that though. In reality 190cm would be more accurate
Tom said on 7/Dec/13
Ted Danson looks a lot shorter than Tom Noonan here. So either Noonan is a genuine 6' 6", or Danson is a standard 6' 2".
StevenMcCormick said on 24/Nov/13
He always looked pretty tall on Cheers . . . I know that many actors are sometimes required to wear lifts [Sinatra did] . . . but he always seemed like he was about 6'3".
Kyuss said on 14/Oct/13
Strange,looks shorter than graig ferguson on that show,,G/F is 6-1"??
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Jun/13
Still standing tall now at just over 6ft2in.

Peak height: 6ft2.75in(190cm)
Current height: 6ft2.25in(189cm)

I'm 6'2.5" and was standing next to Ted Danson at LAX last week. To me he seemed 6'1" at most, and that wasn't because of slouching -- his posture was excellent. I was also struck by how thin he was -- probably around 170 -- and how small his head was, both things that would make him look taller on TV.
Lenad is sexy said on 27/Apr/13
I can see a weak 6'3 at peak. he looked 1-1.5 inches under tom selleck
lenad is sexy said on 6/Apr/13
Doubt hes under 6'2 after looking at that pic with Jeff Bridges
Arch Stanton said on 25/Dec/12
Always looked 6'3" ish to me. If he isn't he is surely close. Not under 189cm.
Martyr said on 4/Dec/12
He still looks pretty tall next to Jeff Bridges

James said on 10/Nov/12
Strange he looked 6ft in a pic with took noonan.

These days though I don't think he's over 188cm.
Ace said on 3/Oct/12
There also an episode in the fifth season where Sam appears jealous when Diane claims her new beau is taller than he. When it turns out that he is only 6'2.5 (which Sam discovers courtesy of carding him), he proudly announces that he is 6'3, much to the boyfriend's confusion.
Silent d said on 26/Sep/12
Pretty tall in becker. Still taller than terry farrell in small heels. She is 182cm. He was also taller than kelsey grammar who is 6 foot 1. 189cm with bad posture.
Ace said on 22/Sep/12
In the finale of season one, Shelly Long refers to Danson as being 6'3.
To me though, a fraction under probably is closer to the truth
Nik said on 28/Aug/12
Let's not get carried away. 6'2.5" peak height is plenty. No more than that.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Aug/12
You mean no less than 6ft2.5.
I'd say 190cm peak, if not bang on 6ft3. The guy is very tall.
Definitely the tallest cast member on Cheers.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 31/Jul/12
He looks about an inch shorter than 6'3 Steve Howey, but has worst posture... Anyway, no more than 6'2.5 for him!
tom said on 5/Jun/12
Defo min of 6.2",maybe taller.
mario said on 13/Oct/07
Ted still looks a solid 6'2 or 6'2.5 i think, he is a tall guy ,just under 6 foot 3 for me
derek said on 27/Sep/07
Well I saw him on again on Conan tonight and I have to say that he looked his 6'2.5 estimate next to him. Conan even made a remark early in the interview about how it strikes him ow tall he is. Why would conan say that if he is shorter than him? Anyway I don't know why I saw 6'5 last time but his height seems to be corrwct.

[Editor Rob: in early 80's danson was being billed 6ft 2, but this guy could pass for 6ft 3.]
sandy said on 16/Sep/07
His height was always wrong because he wore that hair job of his like an afro. It stuck up over his skull like two inches, that is where 6'3 came from. 6'1 to the bald head he has now(sans the wig).
viper said on 15/Jul/07
Conan's show isnt the best to compare heights. Ive seen other 6-2 people on his show looking taller than him.
derek said on 14/Jul/07
I don't know why I remember him looking taller than conan when he was on, which would make him 6'5.
phil said on 22/Jun/07
In the episode of Cheers where he states how tall he is, the Diane character brings in a student who has a crush on her to try to get Sam Malone jealous. Sam asks the student how tall he is and when the student says 6'2", Sam laughs and says "Ha...I'm 6'2 1/2"! Seems to me that you got his height bang on here.
uww said on 22/Jun/07
yes i would say 6'2.5 is about right, he may have been 6'3 but shrunk like an inch though.
sf said on 18/May/07
I have seen an article where Danson, himself, said he was 6'2" and 1/2. There's an episode of Cheers where he claims to be 6'3", when a French guy he's competing with, says he's 6'2" and 1/2....
Macgyver said on 17/May/07
I do not see why Danson does not get a peak height on her. He was clearly taller than his current height in cheers.
footballed28 said on 16/Mar/07
man "Everybody rounds up not down" is such a generalization
sleuth said on 4/Dec/06
I think I remember an episode of Cheers where he claims 6-2. Everybody rounds up not down.
Rut said on 21/Nov/06
I don't even think he is as tall as this.
By the way what happened to him?
Anonymous said on 4/Nov/06
6'2.5? Wow, I used to think Ted was like 6'4 or so, but after taking a second look at him, 6'2.5 does seem closer to the truth.
Gonzalo said on 29/Sep/06
I agrre with Rob. He looks a little bit over 6`2
Mikex said on 26/Mar/06
In 3 Men and a Baby I seem to remember Danson as being shorter than Selleck by an inch or two. There is a photo linked from this site of Selleck next to 6'5'' or 6'6'' Chuck Connors and he looks dwarfed. Danson does look like a genuine 6'2'' guy though. He has that tall rangy look about him.
Anonymous said on 20/Mar/06
he is 6'3 at least id say 6'3.5 DEFINATLY not under 6'3, 6'2.5 is wrong.
ice said on 15/Feb/06
i agree with the 6'3... btw, will smith is 6'2, 6'1.5 at the least, so yeah 6'3 for danson
bikagyura said on 8/Feb/06
definitely looks 6'3 at least
Biffy said on 2/Jan/06
His height was referenced several times on Cheers as 6'3" and he certainly looked it. Some years ago, of course, but surely can't be much less now.
CelebHeights Editor said on 30/Dec/05
From surfergirl:
"this was years ago - about 10 years ago. But while at fisherman's warf in SF, he was out playing with his kids and wife. He is definetly tall. I'd say 6 4 or so"
Anonymous said on 27/Dec/05
was in front of me in the line at the bank in T.O. cali - and trust me this guy is 6-5 all day.
Anonymous said on 1/Dec/05
He was on conan and yeah, he's gotta be at least 6'3, he wasn't that much shorter than conan, who is like 6'4.
john said on 28/Sep/05
Did u see him next to Jake gyllenhaal and some other girl, he was like 5 inches taller then gyllenhaal, how can that be

[Editor Rob: I'm increasing this guy a bit...I do agree he is taller than imagined...]
brett said on 16/Sep/05
Danson is not 6"2, in mug photos in the movie getting even with dad , he has a shot with shoes on obviously and it shows him to be like 6"5, so id say hes over 6"3 with no shoes easy.
sam said on 17/Aug/05
He also pretty close (an inch or less difference) to Tom Selleck, who is at least 6'4".
hoy said on 16/Mar/05
Ted said on The Late Show with Craig Kilborn that he's 6'2".
