Storyline

Hank Hill is an old fashioned, hardworking, beer drinking man who is trying to live in a modern Texas world. His wife is opinionated, his son is a disappointment, his friends are losers, and his Father is oppressive. But through it all, Hank keeps a level head, a strong sense of morality, and by doing so keeps himself "King of the Hill." Written by Mike Kramer

Trivia

Stephen Root was uncredited during the first few seasons. This was because he was also on NewsRadio (1995) and his contract prevented him from being credited on another network's show. After the show was cancelled in 1999, he was able to be credited for "King of the Hill". See more »

Goofs

The Returning Japanese two-parter states Hank inherited his narrow urethra from his father, while Cotton distinctly says in another episode he inherited it from his mother. Of course, Cotton says a lot of things, including the claim that he can pass a bowling ball through his urethra. See more »

Crazy Credits

In the episodes that were originally broadcast in HD, the episodes were clearly drawn with a widescreen presentation in mind. However, during the credits, the Deedle-Dee Productions "American Flag" credit screen is clearly cropped, with some text nearly being cut off as a result. See more »

A remarkable creation
15 July 2002 | by (Irving, TX) – See all my reviews

After "Beavis & Butthead" (which I loved), I was really surprised what an affectionate portrait Mike Judge put together. I know well how ripe Texas rednecks are for satire (being a native Texan), though the target is SO easy, it would get a bit tiresome to watch it week after week for years. Hank Hill turned out to be a realistic redneck: worshipful of tradition, fearful of variety and progress, but not really quite as conservative as he thinks he is. My parents are very much like that, too. As I've watched the series, I've been tickled by different characters at different times: first Bobby (almost zen in his bizarre but internally consistent individuality), then Hank's buddies (where the sillier satire comes in), then Hank himself (eternally thwarted by life, but always strong and loving in the end). Lately, Peggy's outrageous ego has me laughing the most. Since this is more like a regular sitcom than "The Simpsons" is, I doubt it will hold up as long, but for now I love it. "King of the Hill" may be the most realistic portrait of Texans ever seen on TV. In response to previous complaints: 1. While Texas does have many citizens who are members of ethnic minorities, the area of the state in which the show is set (NW Texas--best reckoning has Arlen based on Abilene or San Angelo) has very few of them. 2. If one finds the show boring, one need only change the channel.
