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?
Following the season two cliffhanger ending, rumors begin spreading through various FOX commercials and promotional spots that the Hills would be moving to Hollywood. TV Guide ads and the like even touted Propane Boom (the season two finale) as the "last episode in Texas!" This was all later, of course, revealed to be a hoax, meaning that show show itself (not the characters on the show) was moving to another night on the network, a move that nearly killed the series. Fortunately, this was later rectified, and the show eventually regained the coveted Sunday night prime time slot for the remainder of its run. 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

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
