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.

In certain episodes, the Hill family goes to the hospital called Heimlich County Medical Center. In other episodes they go to the same hospital (according to looks) and the sign outside reads Arlen McMaynerbury Medical Center, not Heimlich County Medical Center. However, it is not uncommon for public buildings (hospitals, schools, convention centers, recreation centers, etc.) to share common designs. There are likely many medical centers of this same design all around Arlen, McMaynerbury, Durndle, and the other cities in Heimlich County. 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
