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.

King of the Hill was passed over for renewal in September 2005, which would have made season ten its final season. The order for new episodes was only made after production had ended on the show. The renewal for the eleventh season was due to the high ratings of season ten. See more
In earlier episodes, it's stated that Peggy grew up in Arlen and her mother was basically an older version of her. Later episodes change her backstory to say that she grew up in Montana, with a mother who was a harsh rancher. See more
