Dan Blocker's height is 6ft 4in (193 cm)

American actor best remembered for playing Eric 'Hoss' Cartwright on the tv series Bonanza. As far back as an edition of a 1959 Lima News, he was being described this height: "The six-foot-four, 275-pounder"

In 1967 Slim Pickens said he "had to wear lifts....I'm 6 feet 3 but alongside Dan Blocker I guess they thought I looked like Mickey Rooney".

Dan Blocker was in a walk on part in an earlier tv western (can't remember the show..maybe gunsmoke? ) but he looked very short to the other unkown coyboys. He looked around maybe barely 6ft2" on the nail !! Lifts will ADD to your height.

Slim was 6' 2" without lifts or cowboy boots, and prone to exaggerate in a very humorous way. In "Bonanza" with Dan, Slim had to measure up to Dan who was probably wearing his 6' 4" boots in that particular episode.

What is Slim Picken implying? That Blocker was 6ft8?

Dan was about 5-6cm shorter than Michael Conrad (197cm), so 191-192cm sounds ok for Hoss Click Here

Dan , if standing straight , was just shy of 6' 2" in bare feet. With his boots, almost 6 ' 4"...

Dan was a strong 6' 3" but occasionally (only very rarely) wore thicker heeled boots to reach that magic 6' 4". Alongside massive villains on "Bonanza", such as 6' 6" Don Megowan, Dan's sheer size (bulk and muscle) overcame the actual visual height comparison to his taller opponents.

193cm - 194 cm . My opinion is 194cm

Yeah even seeing weak 6'3 maybe 6'2.7 area because in all seriousness he was a solid 3 shorter than Clint Walker in Cheyenne. It could look 3.5. Maybe blocker wasn't in lifts while Walked had inch advantage. Who knows.

6'3" for sure... looked a solid 2" shorter than 6'5" actor Bruce Yarnell in "Hound Dog" episode of Bonanza.

Probably a strong 6'3. Its hard to say because other members may had lifts on bonanza. I think Pernell Roberts didn't wear lifts and blocker didn't as well.
