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 school which Bobby Hill attends, Tom Landry Middle School (named after the Dallas Cowboys football coach), really does exist. It is located in Irving, Texas, in the sub-division of Valley Ranch, just a few blocks down MacArthur Boulevard from the Dallas Cowboys' Office and Training Facility (most of the streets in the neighborhood are also named after Dallas Cowboy greats). This is not a middle school, but an elementary school in Valley Ranch. See more
Hank, Dale, Bill and Boomhauer alternate drinking beer "in the alley", (presumably *behind* the Hills' house), and in front of the house (as evidenced by the garage, as in the show's opening, or by events yapping on Rainey Street, in front of the four. See more
