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.

Did You Know?
The school which Bobby Hill attends, Tom Landry Middle School (named after the Dallas Cowboys football coach), really does exist. It is located in Irving, Texas, in the subdivision of Valley Ranch, just a few blocks down MacArthur Boulevard from the Dallas Cowboys' office and training facility (most of the streets in the neighborhood are also named after Dallas Cowboy greats). This is not a middle school, but an elementary school in Valley Ranch. See more
Through out the early seasons when Hank has the Ford Ranger, the transmission changes from a manual transmission to automatic several times. As well in some episodes when its portrayed as an automatic, the gear shifter is on the floor. No Ford Ranger stock has the gear selector been on the floor, only the steering column. See more
It's just as well we're going to die. Who wants to live in a World without God?
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.

In the episode in which Randy Travis steals Peggy's song, syndication cuts Charlie Daniels' brief appearance, though he is still listed in the credits. See more
