West Your laugh du jour

I found these little guys on Amazon. At 1˝", they're 20' tall to N scale figures - comparable to a "Muffler Man". I remember a Muffler Man on a small trailer on Aurora Ave. N in Seattle's North End in the 1960s.

So, how tall would they be to O gauge figures at 1:48 OR 1:50?

At 1.5", they would be 6' tall in O scale (1:48).
