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?
How and when the show's last episodes would air, became a point of uncertainty, after FOX officially cancelled it early in 2009. The network originally planned to show unaired season thirteen episodes at some point in the early 2009-10 season. It was later speculated, that ABC would pick up the show for a fourteenth season, but the idea was shot down by ABC's President. FOX later said it would not air any of the season thirteen episodes, and fans believed they would premiere on either the cable Cartoon Network or a season thirteen DVD. In the end, two new episodes comprising a series finale aired on FOX on September 13, 2009. See more

In the episodes that were originally broadcast in HD, the episodes were clearly drawn with a widescreen presentation in mind. However, during the credits, the Deedle-Dee Productions "American Flag" credit screen is clearly cropped, with some text nearly being cut off as a result. See more
