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?
How and when the show's last episodes would air became a point of uncertainty after Fox officially canceled it early in 2009. The network originally planned to show unaired Season 13 episodes at some point in the early 2009-10 season. It was later speculated that ABC would pick up the show for a 14th season but the idea was shot down by ABC's president. Fox later said it would not air any of the S13 episodes and fans believed they would premiere on either the cable Cartoon Network or a season DVD. In the end, two new episodes comprising a series finale aired on Fox on September 13, 2009. See more
At the end the episode where Hank is having issues with Bowel movements, he rushes to the bathroom, and pulls Bobby out. Bobby is wearing PJ's and has toothpaste on his mouth. After Hank passes a movement, the shot is of Peggy and Bobby, and Bobby is now wearing his usual attire. When Hank emerges from the bathroom, Bobby again is wearing his PJ's. See more
Calm down, Boomhauer! I can't understand a word you're saying!
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
