I could see an argument for Harry being like 6ft3⅝ or something, possibly even 6ft3¾ at push with Larroquette at 6ft4¼.

@Rampage: they can look the same at times. In some pics Anderson doesn’t have the best posture. but I also don’t rule out Larroquette being slightly over 6’4” peak. Or Anderson could be under listed slightly. But it’s possible that the “other taller co-star” was 4 1/2” taller as Moll was 6’8” peak

Harry was just an insecure tall guy who didn't like the fact that he had two taller co-stars one barely taller, the other by 4in...

@Rampage: maybe 1/2” between them but Anderson called him out for lying about his height

If he was 6ft4 then Larroquette was pretty much 6ft5

Harry Anderson and John Laroquette were close in height. Perhaps Laroquette was approximately slightly taller by less than one inch depending upon height of their shoes. A 1988 episode where Johnny Carson had a cameo appearance and Russian comedian yako Smirnoff there was a scene where Anderson and Laroquette were adjacent to one another for about one minute engaged in conversation. Anderson appeared at least as tall as Laroquette, as I was surprised. Anderson appeared at least one inch taller than Ed Mcmahon. He was justified in calling himself being 6’4” tall.

Not long before his death he look unrecognizable and put on at least 40 pounds.

Well, desagree. I saw danson taller than anderson, not the oppisite. Maybe half an inch taller.
His head and jaw line? Maybe could add some height to danson.

In cheers, he looked a little bit shorter than ted danson. I think that danson was about 188-189 peak. Maybe 190 at best. So, its strange that anderson could be 191 or 192.

I saw Harry Anderson actually edging Ted out by an inch. He easily had 1 more inch probably 2 with his brimmed hat. Ted has a longer head and jaw line but that’s all.

Rob, how tall to you think Charles Robinson is?

He played Mac on Night Court and is listed 6ft2 in the web. I think around that mark is fair when he stood next to this guy and Larroquette

Never looked under that range.

was he really 1.5 taller than ted danson?
Canson said on 10/Dec/18
@Rampage: I used to think Laroquette was 6’5ish but probably 6’4.5 or like 194 best case peak.

Harry Anderson seemed to slouch quite a bit in a number of roles, even when he towered over his co-stars. In ‘Night Court’ he was seated for the majority of every episode, so he often appeared to be shorter than he really was.

He looked very tall in Night Court, very close in height to John Larroquette. 1,92 sounds accurate
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Dec/18
Nice add!

I think this guy is concrete evidence that Larroquette was a bit over 6ft4.
Sandy Cowell said on 10/Dec/18
Well, I didn't laugh at Harry's 'joke'!

He can have 6ft3.5 and be happy he isn't a foot smaller! 👞📏

Thank you for this page, listing is perfect, especially since legit 6'4 John Larroquette edges him out
