How to stream ‘King of the Hill’

Laughs as big as Texas.


Jaime Carrillo


Mike Judge may have made his bones with the animated raunch-fest Beavis and Butthead, but his second animated series remains his greatest achievement. King of the Hill sings because of its down-home simplicity.

For the few uninitiated, King of the Hill revolves around Texan everyman Hank Hill, who sells propane and propane accessories. His wife Peggy is a substitute teacher/Boggle champion, whose feet are almost as big as her devotion to her family. And then there’s Bobby, a husky class clown who loves his father, despite having zero in common.

While the show became known less for its relatable family and more for it’s hilarious supporting cast (chronically depressed Army barber Bill Dauterive, shin-less WWII vet Cotton Hill, conspiracy-addled Dale Gribble), King of the Hill remains a classic because there are no bells and whistles to be found. Not one. Just a peek at the hilarity of living in America. Watching the series end to end is a good primer in the good, the bad, and the ugly of the USA. Plus, it’s hilarious.

Here’s everything you need to know to stream King of the Hill.
