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.

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 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.
