Any true fan is sure to know these hilarious King of the Hill quotes.
For 13 years Hank, Bobby, and Peggy showed us just how funny the life of a mundane, Texas family could be. The adult animated sitcom was created by Mike Judge and Greg Daniels and follows the life of Strickland Propane Shop’s assistant manager, Hank Hill.
Unlike other adult sitcoms of the early 21st century, King of the Hill took a realistic approach to comedy and found the funny in everyday aspects of life. Who’d have thought a show about mowing lawns and drinking beer would be so successful?
Despite the humdrum lives of the show’s characters, Judge and Daniels found a way to bring a dark but funny edge to the show by discussing serious issues like education, family, and community through the lens of the show’s redneck crew.
Here are some of the best King of the Hill quotes that sum up the series.

Which King of the Hill character is your favorite?
King of the Hill creator, Mike Judge, initially found success in his first show, Beevus and Butt-Head on MTV. When Judge pitched the idea for a new show based on a realistic family in Texas to FOX, executives weren’t sure it could be a success. So, they decided to team up with Simpsons allum, Greg Daniels, who reworked the show to be better suited for television.
Daniels contributed major character building to Judge’s characters and even came up with a few vital characters of his own— Luanne and Cotton. In fact, Judge and Daniels worked so well together that Judge decided to give Daniels co-creator status in the credits, rather than just co-writer.
