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.
Comment on the Height of Andy Griffith

Concerning Joe's comment on May 8th 2007 the reason of the apparent height difference between bush and Griffith was due to the fact that bush had to wear high heel shoes to make up for the fact that he (bush) had no brain.

It seems to me that Don Knotts was probably no more than 5'7 1/2" tops barefoot. In all of the episodes I have ever seen of The Andy Griffith Show it never looked to me like Andy had 4 1/2" on Knotts. The height difference appeared to be no more than 3 inches tops maybe even 2 1/2". That would put Griffiths' height at around 5'10" or 5'10 1/2". I definitely don't see him as a legit 6 feet barefoot.

In 1985, I saw Jim Nabors on Mackinac Island, MI. and I couldn't believe how tall He was. He seemed to Me to be around 6'4" or More. I'm 5'11" and He towered over Me.

LOL... Jim Nabors is and was 6'0. He even said it before on episodes of Gomer Pyle. I have seen him listed at 6'1", which might be his absolute peak. If he towered over you, then I suspect you're not 5'11"

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 ?

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.

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.

How tall do you think Don Knotts was?

If Griffith is/was really 6'0, there's no way Alan Hale, Jr (Skipper) was any more than 6'1 (he's often listed as 6'4). He was on the Andy Griffith Show today. Griffith DOES look shorter now, but I just don't buy, barring spine injuries, that men shrink 3 or 4 inches by 80.

Andy Griffith was listed as 6'2" in biography magazines in the late 50's and early 60's but I believe he was 6'0'' or maybe a half inch over 6 feet but he is definitely shorter these days. It appears everybody towers over him. He looks to be around 5'10'' these days.
