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 show was shown during the week, some changes were made. Like the opening was altered. Now the title just appears over the heads of Hank, Bill, Dale and Boomhauer whereas in the original version, the title appeared on a seperate screen with Hank's head in the middle; In the original airing of the episode "Square Peg", during the credits, Hank drove up on his riding mower and apologized if the content of the episode was offending to anyone. This was probably cut because Hanks says "Coming up next is a show called X-Files" which he thought was a pornography show but it's about a man and woman who don't have sex. See more »

An excellent change from everything else
18 August 2005 | by kapilkulkarni81See all my reviews

Although we don't get this show in India, I managed to get a couple of episodes from the net. Let me tell you, this is a fine show. It deals with an upright, honest and sometimes down-on-his-luck propane salesman from Texas, Hank Hill and his quirky family and friends. But what makes this show different is that it does not have a frantic pace at which things take place. Although, I thoroughly enjoy 'The Simpsons' and 'Family Guy', yet these shows have everything happening at a breakneck speed; the gags, the animation, etc. King of the Hill somehow has a certain calmness to it. It deals with real people (5 fingers, not 4) and fairly real situations. It always puts a smile on my face and it's nice to hear Hank's pearls of wisdom. It was a pleasant surprise coming from the creators of Beavis and Butthead. I definitely recommend this show. Two thumbs up.
