"Nooooooooooorrrrrm" is 5'8" tall. May have lost a smidge now that he is in his 70s.

173-174 cm seems the most likely for him. However, it does seem like he wears lifts sometimes mainy because of what GUS said plus a few other things. Click Here
with 5'9 Michael Jackson. His lifts are obvious here. Also, some reports of his height are 5'10.

It’s surprising that George Wendt is only 5’8”. I would have guessed that he was 6’0” to 6’2”. His ‘Cheers’ character Norm Peterson was “larger than life”.

Rob, how much taller was Wendt compared to Glenn?
Editor Rob: can't remember the photo!

I met George a few years ago at the cast party for the play that he was doing in LA called "Twelve Angry Men". He is no taller than 5-8.

I was at a fund raiser years ago at a place called The Racquetball Club in southern Ohio. George was there posing for photos for donations to his brother in law's senate campaign. I posed with him, and as I recall, he was taller than 5'8". Unless he had lifts, of course. He was wearing tennis shoes. I thought Glenn was listed as 5'8"on here also. If George is reportedly 5'8", then Glenn looks to be at least an inch or two shorter in the photo above. Even though Glenn isn't standing side by side with him, George's shoulders and head appear to be 2 inches higher. I'm no expert, just offering my two cents. Good job on the site Glenn and Rob. You take alot of abuse and still stay composed.

yeah I used to think he was a tall guy. In fact I used to think he was taller than Ted Danson. I was wrong.

Actually, it was easy to compare George to other Famous stars. He was about 2 inches shorter than Woody Harrelson on Cheers and an inch shorter than John Ratzenberger, who was an inch shorter tha Woody. George did however appear to be taller than Chris Farley when he appeared on SNL.
