King Kong has been scaling skyscrapers and kidnapping blondes for more than eight decades, but one that that hasn't remained consistent is his size. Even in Meriam C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack's 1933 original film, the ape's height fluctuates widely depending on the scene, and in the years since, he's shifted roughly 25 feet to almost 150 feet. With "Kong: Skull Island" out Entertainment Weekly got out their tape measure to compare a few of his many incarnations and finally figure out which Kong is king:

"King Kong," 1933
24 feet tall in the original masterpiece, Kong's size changes noticeably between scenes, especially to make him seem bigger next to the Manhattan skyline.

"King Kong vs. Godzilla," 1962
148 feet tall initially, Japanese filmmakers wanted to pit giant Frankenstein against Godzilla. In the end, they picked Kong, scaling him up for more of a fair fight.

"King Kong Escapes," 1967
66 feet tall Kong shrank for his second appearance in a kaiju (Japanese for strange creature) movie. This time he faced off against his evil robot doppelganger Mechani-Kong.

"King Kong," 1976
55 feet tall the American remake brought Kong back to New York and into the 1970s. Instead of climbing the Empire State Building, he scales the Twin Towers.

"King Kong," 2005
25 feet tall Peter Jackson's faithful homage took a slightly more realistic approach, returning Kong to roughly his original size.

"Kong: Skull Island," 2017
100 feet tall talk about a growth spurt. In preparation for 2020's Godzilla vs. Kong , everyone's favorite ape got another size upgrade.
