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.

This show 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
Hank, Dale, Bill and Boomhauer alternate drinking beer "in the alley", (presumably *behind* the Hills' house), and in front of the house (as evidenced by the garage, as in the show's opening, or by events yapping on Rainey Street, in front of the four. See more
The beginning of the opening title sequence may play a slightly different opening sound depending upon the nature of the episode. For example, an episode where the Hills go to Mexico plays a distinctly Mexican guitar riff at the beginning, whereas the 100th episode had a bell ringing and a hooting sound on top of the other "normal" instrumentation.
