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.

When the episode where Chris Rock plays a comedian driving school instructor aired in syndication, during the credits he and Hank apologized for the content of the show. This only aired once when it played on Sunday nights and showed that the show used to be on at 8:30, because Hank says "coming up next is the X-Files", even though The X-Files does not air in syndication after this show, the line remains intact.
