Burt Ward's Height
5ft 7 ¼ (170.8 cm)
American actor best known for playing Robin in the 1960's TV series Batman. In a 1966 TigerBeat magazine he mentioned his height and weight, claiming that "I'm about 5ft 8 1/2"
..."I weigh about 125 pounds"
. On his resume in his 40's he was once listed "Height: 5'9", Weight: 165 lbs"
I adore Burt though his claims of a succession of groupies in his dressing room are as stretched as his claim to be 5ft 8in.

[Julie Newmar is] very tall. Oh my gosh. I think she was 6’3”. Adam was 6’5”. And they put three-inch heels on him to make him bigger. I’m only 5’8” and they took off the heels of my shoes. And Alan Napier, our butler Alfred, was [6’6”]. So there were all these giant people around and I’m the… short guy. In comparison to Julie, to Adam, I was tiny.

Lol he called Adam 6'5" and Juile 6'3". They were nowhere near those heights.

Burt said to Tiger Beat in 1966 that he was five-eight-and-one-half and 125 lb. (Burt and I share a July 6 birthday,with 73-year-old Burt eight years my senior .) I thought he was about five-eight,but apparently he was one inch shorter,my father's height.(I'm five-eight-and-one-half,200 lb.) Since Adam West("Batman") was at least six-two,Burt was always going to appear shorter than he was,but he seemed quite muscular for 125 lb.

He actually claimed 5'9" at one point. My aunt met him at a car show with the Batmobile back in the early 1970's he gave her an autographed photo for $1 he was selling. On the back was his stats. 5'9" LOL. My aunt is 5'9" and had 2" on him with flat running shoes.

This one surprised me, I was expecting 5'6" or thereabouts, but then I suppose next to West, Napier, Romero he'd appear shorter and perhaps 5'7" flat could be reliable...

Rob , can he be 5'7 or less now
[Editor Rob: today he might be dipping a bit shy of it.]

[Editor Rob: yes, that weight looks right for his youth.]

Always looked 5'7" ish to me in Batman, 5'8.5" is definitely a stretch! That 5'8" really is a major number to many ;-)
