King of the Hill is another animation hit for Beavis and Butthead creator Mike Judge, who also voices the starring character Hank Hill, a propane gas salesman in the fictional town Arlen, Texas. Hank is often besieged by the idiosyncrasies of society, but he finds (some) serenity in his home-life with his wife, substitute Spanish teacher Peggy, his awkward son Bobby and his live-in niece-in-law Luanne Platter. Adding flavor to the ordinary dish the series serves are Hank's friends, divorcee military barber Bill Dauterive, paranoid Dale Gribble (with an obsession with Government conspiracy theories) and gibberish spouting Boomhauer.

Did You Know?
The character of Hank Hill is based on a character in Beavis and Butt-Head
(1993), by the name of Tom Anderson, who acted and talked exactly like Hank. Also, Hank's catchphrase of "That boy ain't right", was from an episode of "Beavis...", when they're at Burger World, and Tom Anderson comments on Beavis, by saying, "That boy ain't right in the head." See more
In one episode, Hank explains that tow truck drivers don't need to have a Hazardous Material license to tow the propane trucks. In fact tow truck drivers are required to have all endorsements on their license in order to tow commercial vehicles. See more

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
