Show Summary

Hank is a true Texan, who loves everything Texas, and hates most things non-Texan. He is a propane gas salesman in the fictional town Arlen, Texas. Hank is often besieged by the idiosyncrasies of society and often has to be the "hero". He has a wife Peggy who starts off as a Substitute Spanish Teacher, but picks up other jobs along the way, a son Bobby, who seems to be the polar opposite of Hank, and a live-in (for the first few seasons) niece-in-law Luanne Platter, who at times can be an airhead. Hank spends a great deal of time in front of his fence drinking beer with his odd friends, divorcee military barber Bill Dauterive, paranoid Dale Gribble (with an obsession with Government conspiracy theories) and gibberish spouting Boomhauer.

    This show has been one of my favorites for a very long time. I love the down to earth humor and the honesty and simplicity in the characters and plots. You can't get much better than this show.
  • Awesome Show

    As a kid, I hated this show. I saw it as boring and just plain old not funny. But fast forward a decade or so, now that I'm 21, I love this show. It's my favorite cartoon now. It has humor that kids and pre-teens wouldn't understand that's why it was unappealing when I was younger. It's one of the most realistic cartoons ever made, and I think it's really underrated. If you don't like King of the Hill, go watch it on Adult Swim when you get a little older and you will realize that it's a very good and pretty funny show! 10/10 starsmoreless

    hi, i would like to find an episode but i don't recall the season or the title. All i recall a little summary:

    Luanne was working very late and brought a fried duck to Bobby, she went in the master bedroom (hank and peggy's room) and she caught them having intimate moments. Does anyone recall that episode? :P
  • The most heart-warming show I've ever seen

    This show is so sweet! Each episode makes me wanna cry, I know King of the Hill is very iconic, but it seems underrated. It isn't as popular as Family Guy, The Simpsons, and South Park. I just love Hank and Bobby's father son dynamics, the way everything is a learning experience for both Hank and Peggy as they are raising their son. Please excuse my rating, I give this show a 10.moreless
  • At least, it's not dirty like "Family Guy".

    Rejoice! Everybody's favorite teenage deviants are back. Even better, so are their teachers and neighbors!
