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.

In "Peggy's Turtle Song", Tom Landry Middle School is stated to be in the "Heimlich County School District" according to the bus Bobby rides. But in later seasons the buses list it as the "Arlen Independent School District." (This is most likely a continuity oversight, however, it is possible Arlen schools split off from the rest of Heimlich County to form a separate school district at some point.) 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.

When the episode where Bill dresses up like Lenore aired in syndication, the following scene was edited: When Bill get's so upset he runs out of a restaurant, because he witnessed so many couples kissing and dancing, and was nearly hit by a truck. The scene was intact when it first aired in syndication, but all other airings had the scene deleted. See more
