1 I do not understand all the hatred for Lucky! He was funny and one of the best characters! Sure he was a redneck and lazy but he was actually a nice guy who treated Luanne and everyone else well. Not to mention he was voiced by Tom Petty the greatest singer EVER! King of the Hill was the best tv show of all time. Never boned. Period. It was a shame it was cancelled but 13 seasons was a very good run. -- Submitted By: (TomPettyFan) on August 1, 2018, 12:09 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 It was not without a few issues along the way, but in comparisson to other shows that lasted this long or similar it maintained quality really well. The tone was generally kept and characters actually grew somewhat (the best example by surprise was John Redcorn - a lot of hidden depths were given to him overtime) plus were relatable. Hank was a fantastic character contrasted with more dysfunctional kinds around him which helped a lot. Bobby was the best written animated kid around - actually acted like a kid, even the goody two-shoes have their rebelliousness; therefore, I think the criticism of him is unfair. Real issues on the show were explored and it showed an overlooked area of America - small town, blue collar folk. I can forgive a tonne, thus it never boned. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on September 23, 2013, 1:56 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 King of the Hill was an interesting series. It was an animated show that eventually juggled humor, drama and suspense quite well, dare I say even better than The Simpsons, Futurama, and certainly better the Seth Macfarlene series'. Yes, Hank is awkward, Bobby is even more awkward, Peggy is rude and an egomaniac, Luanne is a ditz, Khan is rude, Cotton is a bully and a total a-hole, Dale is mentally unstable/insane, Bill is depressive, and Boomhauer is the ladies man who despite that, it seems he can never get the girl in the end, despite being laid back and passionate. (Though I think there was a episode explaining he never takes his relationships seriously, or he just can't find the right gal, wasn't there?) But I found all these characters funny to some extent despite their faults, most of which are easy to relate to and makes them human. I thought Peggy having her over-inflated ego popped every once in a while was funny, Hank's intolerance of Bobby's beliefs and teenage "experimenting" with fads, music, and so on, and Dale being so paranoid that he barely opens the door to the pizza man, however he's surprisingly ignorant to the fact his wife has been cheating on him for years with John Redcorn and conceived a illegitimate son, Joseph, whom Dale swears shares his blood and spoils him rotten just to name a few. There were some odd episodes I hated. For example, there was that several part story arc with Peggy's skydiving accident. Despite the character development she and Cotton got, it was unbelievable. I think this show started to slip when Luanne married Lucky. I didn't hate his character, but he was somewhat annoying at times. He just seemed like some bum who screwed the system to get every penny he owned. Lucky was wise at times, he also seemed to be a loving husband do Luanne, but it wasn't enough to save him. When Cotton passed it only sunk deeper (I hated his character, but he did give some pretty good comic relief), but continued to be a decent quality show. -- Submitted By: () on July 3, 2013, 1:27 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

6 Underrated show as a whole, but this was a program where you enjoyed the secondary characters more than the main family (I know Dale Gribble is a lightning rod of criticism for his bizarre behavior, but he was a foil to Hank's plain-thinking mentality). Hank is this guy who wishes he was in Eisenhower's America, Bobby was one of the biggest wastes of spaces on TV until Jake Harper, and I can rag on and on about the annoyingly stupid Peggy Hill. The show also followed these following concepts for an episode: Hank is disappointed by Bobby ("dog dancing", when Bobby wants to try learning humor from a disturbed person), the whole town hates Hank (the Arlen flood, a snake disappearing into a toilet, "Racist Dawg", and when Hank moved Bobby to a different baseball legue), Hank deals with a "jackass" (the termite exterinator, the deranged man at the racetrack), Peggy-based episodes, and episodes focused around the secondary characters (Boomhauer's brother comes to town, Dale has to give up his exterminating business due to declining health, Bill takes a tank on a joyride in a bout of depression, and Kahn degenerates into the preverbial redneck he considers Hank and his friends to be). The last group were actually the best episodes because those characters grew more depth than the main family. -- Submitted By: (JDogindy) on October 12, 2011, 9:41 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Never boned. Thankfully it ended when it did, or else they would have either had to replace Brittany Murphy or kill off the Luanne character. -- Submitted By: (TheTruth) on March 25, 2011, 6:27 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Never Boned for me, although it came awfully close with Lucky(started to grow on me a bit), Cotton's death (luckly it was the final season anyways.) Good thing it ended way it did though otherwise with these two reason I said above, I didn't think it last anylonger anyways. I still love watching KOTH reruns and it still make me laugh. -- Submitted By: () on December 25, 2010, 8:00 am - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Irbloom has it right. When the show first aired, it was great satire. But over the course of time, it went from that to nothing more than something stupid, though I would probably attribute it to it running out of material after being on for so long. At least it didn't stay on the air, and just limp on like The Simpsons -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on December 23, 2010, 3:17 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

11 It's weird how whenever a relative of a character would guest star, KOTH would always screw up the way the character has been previously described. Peggy's mother has already been mentioned and also Peggy's brother, who was supposed to be a wimpy guy that looked like Peggy. But they also got Dale's father wrong too. He was previously depicted as looking, sounding, and behaving similar to Dale. When he actually appeared, he was a flaming gay man than didn't look or sound at all like Dale. The episode with Boomhauer's brother Patch was weird too because Patch called his brother (Jeff) by his last name, "Boomhauer". -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on November 19, 2010, 12:22 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

13 The Simpsons should take a lesson from King of the Hill. KOTH was a great show for almost all of its run, but really started declining at the end, most notably starting with the Miss Wakefield episode. Fortunately they ended the series before too long after that so it will still always be remembered as a classic show. -- Submitted By: (MarkBagge) on June 27, 2010, 7:12 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
14 I am from the Hank Hill region of the United States, so for me the show has at times been something very very funny. I believe that Mike Judge hand picked an episode to start letting the show go crapity. That episode was season 9 episode 1. The character of peggys mom was well established as a housewife living in Arlen that did not permit the use of contractions. She appears in this episode as a contration using tough-as-nails Rancher in Montana. Peggy even says "She is not the woman I grew up with." The real clue it might be intentional is the presence of guest star Henry Winkler in this episode. Judge wanted the real Fonz there when it was time to uhmmm... Bone the Fish. -- Submitted By: (MartinCriss) on June 13, 2010, 5:35 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
15 This was a very good show, you could relate to the characters, and it was a serious cartoon that we could watch to escape from the more cartoony animated programs like South Park. But it went downhill when they introduced Lucky, god he was a useless unnecessary unfunny character. It got worse when Luanne married him, and he became a regular. The final nail on the coffin was when cotton died. although the last couple episodes were ok. -- Submitted By: (internet_fan) on January 24, 2010, 5:52 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

17 KOTH was the last show I would watch everytime it came on, no matter what episode. A lot of people have problems with the end of the series and I understand that, but I will always love the crap out of this show. -- Submitted By: (Xenoltih) on August 21, 2009, 2:05 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

19 This was one of the greatest animated sitcoms ever but then Luanne had to get involved with Lucky an ugly, bucktoothed,middle aged, idiot, and she had stated in previous episodes that she would never ever marry someone who was so many years older than her and she was repulsed by hillbillies and the new writers had to ruin it and worse off they had her marry him and he's not funny at all how many times can you stand "duh I done gone and slipped on pee pee at the costco" and worse off when she became pregnant she was pregnant for two years and did not show any signs until the episode where she gave birth, another reason was the death of Cotton Hill a great character they could've handled it better like they just had to retcon his earlier prejudice of the Japanese even though he felt bad for what he did to them and in tern forgave them for what they did to him in an earlier episode and he could've had a more heroic death like an intruder breaking into the house and about to kill the Hills when he takes a bullet for them and fights off the intruder before being taken off to the hospital instead of swallowing shrimp, developing an allergy and falling onto a grill after picking a fight with the chef, Bobby, and Didi with G.H. could've visited him in the hospital there was no excuse for that Bobby could've handled it, Peggy shouldn't have bitched him out before he died you just don't to that to a dying person, and they should not have cremated him that was a big waste in an earlier episode he fought hard to earn a veteran's grave, then there's the character flanderizations like Bobby being extremely immature he was more mature in the earlier episodes, Luanne's over exaggerated stupidity to the point where she became the very thing she never wanted to be a hillbilly, the character background changes like Peggy living on a ranch in Montana she never stated she lived on a ranch before, her mother having changed completely in appearance and attitude and Peggy claiming to have not talked to her in 20 years despite her visiting in past episodes and them having a fine relationship, and Luanne's father's change in personality and appearance in past episodes he was described as a small timid man who looked like Peggy if she were a dude and he had fled because Leanne was abusive to him but in the episode where he appeared he was completely changed he was a big fat guy who looked nothing like Peggy he claimed to have never talked to Hank despite him saying he enjoyed his company in past episodes, he claimed to not have seen Luanne since she was a little girl despite her last seeing him when she was just a few years younger than her present age, and he was changed into a sleazy, lazy, con artist who supposibly ran off because he's addicted to drugs, and last off all very few of the episodes have anything memorable or exciting happen like in past episodes. -- Submitted By: (comic_guy87) on May 26, 2009, 5:11 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
20 This show stopped being funny when people started just coming up with random, soulless situations, sticking "The usual suspects" in it, and making all the scripts "How would the characters react in this situation?"... They started being mostly lame around season 10, and now there are almost no consistantly entertaining episodes. Every episode is like a bland "King of the Hill fanfic", some of them inane, some of them ridiculously monumental, and unlike when stuff was inane or monumental before, it's all done in a horribly stiff, unnatural manner... -- Submitted By: (MrBriggsInc) on May 18, 2009, 7:01 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
