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>

Alternate Versions

When the episode "Lianne's Saga" aired in syndication, the ending was altered. Originally during the beginning of the closing credits, dialogue went like this: Bobby: "You kicked her ass, Mom". Peggy: "Yes". Bobby: "But she's a better dancer than you." Peggy: "You do not know that." That was cut and just featured Bill saying, "And if she does come back, well, then I'll call the police."

User Reviews

Great show.
20 May 2003 | by chthon2See all my reviews

King of the Hill is about Hank Hill, a proud propane salesman in Texas. When he isn't at work, he spends time with his family and three friends. The entire cast is great, and the writing is top notch. The show is funny without going over the top. In fact, this is probably quite a realistic portrayal of life in Texas. One worth watching.
