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.

Looking for laughs as big as Texas? Head for the hills!
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
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
Calm down, Boomhauer! I can't understand a word you're saying!
Usually during the credits, Hank talks to the audience and apologizes for the content of the episode, or disputes occurring during the show were resolved. See more
