How tall is Andy Griffith ?

Andy Griffith's height is 6ft 0in (183 cm)

US Actor from Matlock. In his Andy Griffith show of the 60's I think it is reasonable that this guy might have been close to 6ft, at least appeared on screen at that height. By the 80's Matlock days, he maybe lost an inch or so. In the 90's looked closer to 5ft 9 and nowadays, aged 80 he appears around 173-4cm.

I'm not so sure he was 5'11". I was watching the Andy Griffith Show the other day, and in the episode "Barney's Uniform", he looks a full 1" shorter than 5'11" Allan Melvin. Melvin is listed consistently at 5'11". In one scene they're almost face to face, and Melvin is clearly taller. Andy was in his late 30's when that episode was filmed, so he was still prime height. Bottom line for me: Andy was 5'10.5" at best.

What about the boots, what brand. Do they still make them ?

@Lorne
Knott's was no more than 5'7 . Very light/small build and slim.
Andy was never full 6'0 I'd say 5'11.25-5 tops.

Knotts was close to 5'8 at peak, like 171-172cm. Andy 182-183cm, knotted does get listed to this day as 169cm many places, but in the 60's he was described as 5'8, I'm not convinced he was a full 5'8, but was certainly closer to 173 then 169. Griffith lost a lot of height though, that's for sure, but on early Matkick episodes he did still look 180cm range, I can believe he was close to 6 ft, ad Rob says. But either way, RIP Andy Griffith...

I think it was imperative to the storyline of the Andy Griffith Show that Andy be quite a bit taller than Barney. If you look at them side by side in Matlock, though, they are darn near the same height. Either Andy did lose a few inches as he aged or they made him taller through artificial means on TAGS. Whatever, I loved them both and still do

Yeah I'd imagine that just from seeing him next to Barney all the time, that at his max height he was between 5'10'' and 6'0''. The thing was that Barney was 5'6.5'' and although Andy was by far taller than Don, he did wear those boots with a bit of a heel, plus, his thick waves go an inch or two above the head! : ) I'd say that Andy was no taller than 6 feet.
