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?
Hank is seen as owning two pick-up trucks in the series. At the start of the series, he drives a 1997 Ford Ranger. Later in the series, when he is forced to replace his truck, due to it being hit by a train, he upgrades to a Ford F-250. (The model year is unknown.) See more
In "Peggy's Turtle Song", Tom Landry Middle School is stated to be in the "Heimlich County School District" according to the bus Bobby rides. But in later seasons the buses list it as the "Arlen Independent School District." (This is most likely a continuity oversight, however, it is possible Arlen schools split off from the rest of Heimlich County to form a separate school district at some point.) See more

When the episode where Hank wants to take Bobby deer hunting aired in syndication, some scenes were altered, like: the scene of Peggy describing milestones to Hank; and at the permit office, he asks for a permit but it edits the part where he also asks for a Don't Mess With Texas bumper sticker.
