Storyline

Hank Hill, a propane gas salesman in the fictional town of Arlen, Texas, is often besieged by the idiosyncrasies of society, but 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 were Hank's friends, divorcé military barber Bill Dauterive, paranoid Dale Gribble (with an obsession with government conspiracy theories), and gibberish-spouting Boomhauer. Written by Ondre Lombard <olombard@lombard.cyberverse.com>

Trivia

In nearly every episode of this show, Hank, Dale, Bill, and Boomhauer stand in the alley and drink beer. Creator Mike Judge has described the four of them as like "the Greek chorus of the show." See more »

Crazy Credits

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 »

Alternate Versions

When the episode where Hank wants to take Bobby deer hunting aired in syndication, some scenes were altered, like: the scene of Peggy describing milestones to Hank; and at the permit office, he asks for a permit but it edits the part where he also asks for a Don't Mess With Texas bumper sticker.

Better than most non-animated shows
19 April 1999 | by TikimanSee all my reviews

Now that Mike Judge has made a fortune off Beavis and Butthead, he gets to do what he wants - thankfully his creativity extends far beyond the crude (though very funny) humor of his previous series. KOTH has its share of humor, but I think it shines because of the perceptiveness it displays about life. The series is full of very touching moments between Hank and his son Bobby, which rang very true with me, since I am an only child (Hank has a narrow urethra, so Bobby is his only offspring). All in all, this is a great show to watch, and I hope it stays on the air for a long time.
