From Beavis and Butt-head creator Mike Judge and former The Simpsons writer/producer Greg Daniels comes King of the Hill, a sharp cartoon comedy chronicling the trials of low-rent Texan Hank Hill, his family, and their ragtag neighbors.

King of the Hill

From deep in the heart of Texas comes the half-hour animated comedy KING OF THE HILL. The series received numerous accolades over its 13-year run, including an Emmy® Award for Outstanding Animated Program. KING OF THE HILL has garnered several award nominations and was hailed as the Best Television Show of the Year after its debut by TV Guide, Entertainment Weekly and TIME Magazine. The series is translated into numerous languages, and is licensed in almost 50 countries around the world. KING OF THE HILL depicts the life and times of HANK HILL (Mike Judge), his family and their neighbors in the fictional suburb of Arlen, Texas. A hard-working, loyal family man and proud Texan, Hank is assistant manager of Strickland Propane. He’s a blue-collar man of all trades who sees himself as the voice of common sense and reason in a world of incompetent sales clerks, meddling bureaucrats and do-good liberals. Hank’s better half is his wife, PEGGY (Kathy Najimy). Peggy sees herself as a woman of many talents: realtor, substitute Spanish teacher, fast-pitch softball hurler, local Boggle champion and notary public. Hank and Peggy’s pride and joy is their 13-year-old son, BOBBY (Pamela Adlon). The family is completed by Hank’s 18-year-old niece, LUANNE (Brittany Murphy). Hank can often be found around a barbeque with his beer guzzling neighborhood buddies, DALE (Johnny Hardwick), BILL (Stephen Root) and BOOMHAUER (Mike Judge). Dale’s an exterminator who never met a conspiracy he didn’t like, Bill’s a lonely-hearted Army barber with low self-esteem, and Boomhauer is a cool, rockabilly, muscle-car-driving ladies’ man who speaks unintelligible English.
