You should add Tom Kenny and some others for a page

Could be struggling with mark today though but peak looked no less than it....
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Nov/22
Rob, any validity to that 6ft6½ claim?

I reckon earlier in the day he may have got it for real, not necessarily a shoe claim.
Editor Rob
Could Bill have once measured it? I suppose it's to be considered as a possibility!
Leighton Tang said on 4/Aug/22
@Rob The 6'6.5 claim is probably his morning height. I mean, Bo Burnham reaches that height in the morning and he is presumably half an inch shorter.
Leighton Tang said on 12/Jun/22
@Tall Sam If there's 7 inches between them, then Tom Kenny at a strong 5'10 would make Bill Fagerbakke a strong 6'5, which can't be right next to Jason Segel
Mincer said on 6/Jun/22
Rob, he claims 'six six and a half' at about 3.00 in this interview

What do you think of it?
Editor Rob
It's an interesting claim, is he really this tall...
Tall Sam said on 8/Aug/21
Rob would you consider a page for Tom Kenny? He looks maybe a strong 5’10”, maybe around 5’10.5” seemed a little taller than Bob Odenkirk & David Cross but a little shorter than Alan Ruck, with a believable 7+ inch difference with Bill.

M-O-O-N spells Bill Fagerbakke, and anyone who's a fan of Stephen King's brilliant 'The Stand' will know what I mean, but he's a simplistic man for good reason, as he has a mammoth task ahead of him, and no one will suspect him because of his constant spelling out of MOON and general way of behaviour. 🌝

He's loveable and warm, and is accepted by Mother Abigail (Ruby Dee) with open arms, as is everyone else, except for Nadine Cross. Ruby has been chosen by God for her exceptional faith, and just before she meets them all, she was playing with a remote control lawnmower and laughing her little head off, as was I! 😂👌

Bill is by far the giant of the cast, and I didn't disbelieve the height I read for him while rooting around with the cast a few moments ago.

6ft6. 🌛😁

6ft 6 is a lot less common than 5ft 6 for the peak height of American adult males, but slightly more common than 5ft 2.
Liam Gallagher said on 13/Dec/20
I'd say he's 6'6.25
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 11/Nov/20
Ryan Stiles could be a guy holding well at 198.5cm a low but just with 6'6 claim. I remember Ryan look close to 4" taller than flat 189cm Ashton Kutcher. Bill does give a shorter 6'6 impression than Ryan.
Tall Sam said on 3/Oct/20
Rob, how tall would say his daughter is in the picture above? She seems to be a quite tall young woman.
Editor Rob
heels help her a bit, but maybe near 5ft 8, she has a Sister who looks taller.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Aug/20
Ryan Stiles gives a taller impression than this guy
Dream said on 20/Jun/20

Yeah. He looked at least 1.25 inch taller than Joe Manganiello, with Jason Segel.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 27/May/20
Doubt he lost more than fraction. Atually still look 6'6.
Thomas Zou said on 13/Mar/20
I say he is 6'6" compared to Tom Kenny (5'11"), I am 5'10" tall.
Dream said on 23/Jul/19
Might still be 6’6”, today.

Bill looks 1-2 inches taller than Joe Manganiello.
Canson said on 17/Jul/19
@Junior: I don’t know. I think he may still be the full 6’6”. Stiles is built (proportionately) differently than him but I won’t rule out 6’5.75
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 16/Jul/19
Bill is 6'6 1/2-3/8 out of bed and 6'5 3/4 before bed. Ryan Lee Stiles is a stronger 6'6.
Mincer said on 19/Apr/19
Rob who do you think would measure taller in their prime, Bill or Ryan Stiles?
Editor Rob
Ryan may look taller, but his frame helps - what they measure exactly is another matter.

Hulk Hogan: I'm 6'7"

Bill Fagerbakke *Patrick's voice*: Mr. Krabs, I'm only 6'6"!
Canson said on 6/Oct/18
@Dream: I can see him measuring somewhere around what Bill Deblasio or Perhaps Carmelo Anthony would measure. He does look 6’6” often enough
Dream(5'9.5") said on 4/Oct/18

It’s possible.

At the same time, I still have to look into Bill, but he does look an easy 6’6” guy. If he was under 6’6” (which I doubt) I think it would be no more than 1/16ths of an inch. He’d be taller than Owen Benjamin.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 2/Oct/18

Segel might not be as tall as listed though.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 2/Oct/18
@Canson Agreed! Melo does look that strong 6’6” like Reid Carolin.

Now, I have to look more into Bill, but he does look what an easy 6’6” guy should look.
Canson said on 1/Oct/18
@Dream: Melo May also fall around that category of 198.5. I don’t have him below 6’6” however
Dream(5'9.5") said on 1/Oct/18
I think he could be the first 6’6 1/8th” guy.

Even at an old age, I’ve never seen Jason Segel look that small.

I gotta wonder, do many people mistake him to be much taller than he is?
Dream(5'9.5 said on 29/Sep/18
Rob, what are the odds that Bill (at his peak) could be a solid 6'6"?

I saw a few pictures of him and Craig T Nelson.

I've never seen a strong 6'3" look that small compared to Bill Fagerbakke.
Editor Rob
He could have been a solid 6ft 6, maybe a bit shy of it today.
Tall Sam said on 21/Aug/18
Maybe worth adding Tom Kenny at 5'10.5"-5'10.75", who also looked maybe a weak 5'11" range back with Bob & David on Mr. Show.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 21/Aug/18
Didn't realize the voice actor for Patrick was this tall
Mayfield said on 16/May/18
Come to think of it, 5'10 1/2 might be a good range for Tom Kenny
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Mar/18
Rob, maybe he's a bit shorter than this today?
Editor Rob
A half inch loss is possible for him now. Still think he can look over 6ft 5 flat.
Anonymous said on 21/Dec/17
I think he was the 6'6 at peak if Craig T. Nelson was the 6'3.5 he's listed at here. Weak 6'6 could be true today but he doesn't do much live action anymore. I think he is still at least 2 inches taller than Jason Segel

@Editor Rob,

How tall do you think his Buddy “Tom Kenny” is?

He’s the iconic voice actor of Spongebob and is listed 5’11” everywhere on the Net.
He actually does look it with Bill and Antonio….

Do you agree Rob?
Editor Rob
Bill can look 7 or 8 inches taller than Tommy.
Some Guy said on 21/Dec/17
He towered over every other cast member in Oz. A very big guy indeed. He even made 6'3 Jason Segel look short in comparison in HIMYM.
RP said on 21/Dec/17
Pam Stone, who herself is 6'0" tall...played the Ladie's Basketball coach & Dobber's part time girl friend on the TV Show Coach with Craig T Nelson ( 6'3" barefoot )...And in one episode she refers to Dobber as being 6'5". They were basically talking about the benefits of dating each other...she said jokingly..."well, you being 6'5" helps" ...with Pam her self being a legit 6'0" tall...some have even called her 6'1"...however, she once also called herself 6'0" tall in socks, in one of her stand up comedy routines from years ago.
Drew Jackson said on 20/Dec/17
Weak 6’6. Very very strong 6’5 tho
Mayfield said on 20/Dec/17
How tall is Tom Kenny, voice of SpongeBob? Compared to him, I would guess around 5'10 or 11
Editor Rob
probably not quite 5ft 11.
Paul NS (6ft0.5) said on 19/Dec/17
Looks like an honest claim. Seemed over 2in taller than Jason Segel on himym
