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.

  • At least, it's not dirty like "Family Guy".

    A very sweet show
  • One of my all time faves!

    8.5
    It's so funny because when I first saw King of the Hill, I thought it was one of most boring shows I've ever seen. Of course, I was around 10 at the time so of course I would find it boring since I didn't get the jokes or situations all that much.



    Eventually, i came around to the show after talking to a friend who really loved it. I was about 15 or 16 at the time and so I gave the show another try and low and behold, I really enjoyed it! All the characters make the show and it's so funny watching season 1 and seeing how the show progressed through time. Honestly, I love all the seasons. Like everyone else, I really hate Peggy's arrogance but honestly, the show wouldn't have been the same without her. I'm sure the concept behind the character WAS to be annoying and she fits the role well haha. So as much as I don't like her, she's also very funny as you witness her arrogance and naivety. The episode "Lupe's Revenge" is one of my all time favorites of the series. Hank is kind of boring but at the same time, he's pretty fun to watch at times too.



    I don't know, I wish I could write more but I think this will suffice for now. All in all, this is one of my favorite animated series of all time and I'm so glad it managed to accumulate 13 seasons. I'm kind of pissed that the show got cancelled for Cleveland show but at the same time, maybe it was for the best because I wouldn't want to see King of the hill become like Family Guy (I do like Family guy but I 'm not the biggest fan of the newer episodes, they are becoming a little stale)



    King of the Hill is a very underrated show and it just has a different type of humor that takes awhile to get used to but with that said, the show isn't for everyone. Is it the best show? No, not really but it's a decent show to watch if you want to get some more subtle humor (as opposed to toilet humor).moreless

  • Good but not my favorite Mike Judge show

    7.0
    It's still pretty good and Hank Hill is the best animated TV dad next to Homer Simpson but I'm more into Beavis and Butthead.

  • YOU KNOW WHEN YOU HEAR "SO NO ONE TOLD YOU LIFE WAS GONNA BE THIS WAY -- YOUR JOB'S A JOKE, YOU'RE BROKE, YOUR LOVE LIFE'S D.O.A...." AND YOU IMMEDIATELY THINK OF RACHEL, ROSS, MONICA, CHANDLER, JOEY AND PHOEBE?
