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?
Throughout the series, on the rare occasion that Bobby is seen playing Little League, he wears #3. This is in homage to Babe Ruth, another husky baseball player. This connection is confirmed in "King of the Hill: Bad News Bill
(2009)" when the coach refers to him as "Great Bobino", a nod to Ruth's nickname of "Great Bambino". See more
The picture of Cotton Hill in Hank and Peggy's bedroom changes from episode to episode. In some episodes it doesn't even resemble Cotton. See more
