Rob, how tall would you say Henry Selick, director of The Nightmare Before Christmas, looks with Burton?

Actually, that’s interesting, Tim Burton is associated with that film so much, many forget he didn’t direct it!

I'm surprised at this listing, I've always assumed he was 5'9 to 5'10, he doesn't have the best posture that must be it

Rob, what height would you say Jack Skellington would fit?

5'7 Aravind said on 9/Jul/17
Is it possible that he is now 5'10.75 due to him being 58 years old?
Or is he still 5 feet and 11 inches?
Editor Rob
yeah he might have lost a 1/4 or so.
Blake said on 3/Jul/17
Rob, are you or Jenny big fans of the nightmare before Christmas I have seen you have quite a bit of their merchandise in your house pillows, pencil case and Jenny has a tshirt?
Editor Rob

Can you give him a peak height?
5'6.5 Indiana jones guy said on 21/Jul/16
Any possibility of him at a 5'11.5-6'0 peak?
Editor Rob
5ft 11.5 may not be impossible
5'6.5 Indiana jones guy said on 2/Jul/16
I think at bed he's 5'10.
5'6.5 Indiana jones guy said on 2/Jul/16
Rob, today is it possible that he's 179?
Editor Rob
of course he can look it at times.

At minimum I see Tim at 179 cm, he could be close to 182 or 183 at peak but I'd say nowadays that 181 cm should be peak at near 60.

He could have passed for 6'0 at times.

Shortest 5ft11 guy I've ever seen
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Apr/16
Seriously, I though he was down there w/h Woody Allen, Scorsese, and Spielberg!
James B said on 8/Apr/16
Shocked I thought he was 5'5
Celebheights 6'1.75 said on 6/Apr/16
He has a long torso, so he appears to be a lot shorter than he actually is.

Out of bed-5'11 3/4"
Before bed: 5'10 1/2"

Out of bed-5'11 1/4"
Before bed-5'10"

He likely loses 3 CM of height throughout the day.

The picture doesn't do him justice. I've seen 5'8 guys look taller in photos.
lancerevo06 said on 4/Apr/16
He doesn't look very tall in the picture. Nothing close to how a 5'11 man would look.
Sam said on 4/Apr/16
Think I've read six foot claims for him in the past but yeah he looks a couple inches taller than Johnny Depp, but no more than that really.

Rob, you have two Johnny Depp links ;-) Can you add Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Sweeney Todd?
