Everyone knows celebrities lie about their height. That actor who comes up as 6 feet tall on IMDb is definitely only 5 feet 6 inches at best, every time. But what do you do when the height deceiver at hand is… a cartoon character?

Frozen fans were flabbergasted to discover Olaf’s supposed height, per Google, is 5 feet 4 inches. Now, if you’ve been living in an ice cave and don’t know who Olaf is, he’s this presumably pocket-sized snowman who accompanies Elsa and Anna on their adventures in both films.

The idea of a talking snowman, even a friendly one, being roughly the same height as a real-life human is making people rethink their love of what they thought was a cuddly, little snow dude.

“If i see a 5’4 tall talking snowman I’d shit my pants,” one user tweeted.

Another pointed out Olaf is actually bigger than many humans.

“Good luck sleeping tonight,” they wrote.

But another challenge presents itself. How freaking tall must his human companions be if he’s 5 feet 4 inches? People on Twitter are busting open their brains trying to twist the calculations into anything that kind of makes sense.

“Since olaf is 5’4, i think elsa and anna are the same height as peppa pig…” one person wrote, referencing another shocking supposed cartoon character height. A seemingly random Google search in July found that Peppa Pig is over 7 feet tall.

Others pointed out that, from looking at a photo, Elsa and Anna make up roughly two and a half Olafs, meaning the Frozen-verse humans are 11 feet 2 inches tall.

…oh no.
