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
Early on Hank states that he was born in 1953. Then in another show Hank says that he graduated Arlen High in 1974, which would make him born in 1956. Later Hank learns that he was born in New York on the day that Fidel Castro visited Yankee Stadium, which was April 15, 1959. See more
