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.

Did You Know?
Following the season two cliffhanger ending, rumors begin spreading through various FOX commercials and promotional spots that the Hills would be moving to Hollywood. TV Guide ads and the like even touted Propane Boom (the season two finale) as the "last episode in Texas!" This was all later, of course, revealed to be a hoax, meaning that this show (not the characters on the show) was moving to another night on the network, a move that nearly killed the series. Fortunately, this was later rectified, and the show eventually regained the coveted Sunday night primetime slot for the remainder of its run. See more
When Hank was a senior in high school in (what according to his calendar is) February 1975, he had a Jaws movie poster on his bedroom wall. Jaws wasn't released until the following summer. See more

When the episode "Lianne's Saga" aired in syndication, the ending was altered. Originally during the beginning of the closing credits, dialogue went like this: Bobby: "You kicked her ass, Mom". Peggy: "Yes". Bobby: "But she's a better dancer than you." Peggy: "You do not know that." That was cut and just featured Bill saying, "And if she does come back, well, then I'll call the police."
