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?
There is no beer based on King of the Hill's "Alamo Beer". The Real Ale beer is actually called "Remember Alamo Golden Ale" but only in San Antonio, everywhere else it is called "Real Ale Firemans #4".
Actually, as anyone who has ever been to Texas realizes, "Alamo Beer" is a parody of "Lone Star Beer", which has long semi-facetiously advertised itself as "The National Beer of Texas". This presentation is done along the same lines as "Luly's" for "Luby's" or "The Renaissance Faire" for "The Texas Renaissance Festival" and other satirical yet obviously-apparent-to-locals ways around potential copyright infringement. "Whataburger", on the other hand, is presented as-is, as are the "Dallas Cowboys". See more
When Hank passes out from varnishing the grandfather clock in Hillennium, when he falls over he leaves a varnish streak down the clock face. But when he wakes up, this streak is gone. See more
I'm going to kick your ass!
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
