King of the Hill: The Boy Ain't Right (King of the Hill) King of the Hill (Television Series) King of the Hill - The Complete First Season

Hank Hill
Hank is the centre of the comedy. He is devoted to his wife Peggy who he has been with for 20 years of his life. Of course, he loves her dearly but would appreiciate it if she kept a bit more quiet when discussing bodily functions, sex organs, and of course his narrow urethra. The next thing in Hank's life is propane, and propane accessories. Hank is proud of his country and of the state of Texas.

Peggy Hill
As a mother, wife and subsitute teacher, Peggy definetly does have her hands full. She works hard, plays hard, loves hard - especially her son Bobby. She is recognized by family and neighbours as the smartest person in Arlen and is Arlen's 1996 Substitute Teacher of the Year. She is a strong-willed Texan woman with a mind of her own - she demands and often gets total respect.

Bobby Hill
Bobby is Hank and Peggy's 12 year pride and joy. Bobby is not unlike the boys his age - that is, he loves video games, TV and snacks. As part of his sexual awakening, he experienced his first kiss with a plastic beauty mannequin. He has also given up smoking.

Dale Gribble
Dale is Hank's closest neighbour and one of his best friends. Dale's profession is an exterminator. He has his own insecticide, which has somehow been very unsuccesful. Possibily because it's nearly all gasoline. Ok, it's all gasoline. Dale believes everything he sees on "The X-Files" and he thinks the world is about to be taken over by a powerful supercomputer known solely as "The Beast". Dale hates the government and big organisations - with the possible (only possible) exception of the General Tobacco Company. Dale is married to Nancy and they have one son together, Joseph. He is often found with his best friend Bobby.

Just say "Boomhauer" to anyone, and chances are you'll get a sentence back containing his favourite phrase: "Dang 'ol". Boomhauer's slurred and nearly uncomprehensible speech can only be understood by Hank who usually is able to "translate" this!

The most famous quote: Yup

Q: What's with that kid who calls Dale "dad?" Is he adopted?
A: Joseph John Gribble's father is actually John Redcorn, who treated Nancy Gribble for "headaches" for fourteen years (until she broke up with him in the episode "Nancy's Boys"). Dale thinks Joseph is his own son, and the closest he ever came to figuring out the truth was in "Of Mice and Little Green Men," when he became convinced that Joseph was fathered by an alien.

Q: Is Arlen a real town in Texas? Is it based on a real town?
A: Arlen is not a real town. There are two primary inspirations for Arlen. One is Garland, Texas, a town near Dallas, which was the town Mike Judge has said he had in mind when he first pitched the show. The other primary inspiration is Austin, Texas, which is where Mike Judge lives and where the writers go every year to do research for story ideas.

Q: Where do the characters' names come from?
A: Bill Dauterive is named after KotH writer (and Texas native) Jim Dauterive.
- Dale Gribble is named after the late Mike Gribble, co-founder of the "Spike and Mike" Animation Festival in San Diego, which premiered Mike Judge's first two Beavis and Butt-Head shorts.
- Luanne Platter is named after a discount special, the "Luann Platter," served at the Texas restaurant chain Luby's (which was also the inspiration for the restaurant "Luly's" on the show).
- The local minister, Reverend Karen Stroup, gets her name from a female minister at Central Christian Church in Springfield, Tennessee.
- Kahn, of course, is just an anagram of "Hank."

Q: Was there a "Monsignor Martinez" spinoff from the show?
A: In 2001, Fox ordered a live-action pilot called "Monsignor Martinez," based on the lead character of Hank and Peggy's favorite Mexican soap opera. The pilot starred Argentinian actor Ivo Cutzarida as Monsignor Martinez, and the supporting cast included King of the Hill's David Herman. The pilot was written by longtime KotH writer Jim Dauterive (who came up with the Monsignor Martinez character in an episode he wrote called "The Son that Got Away"), directed by Mike Judge, and executive-produced by Dauterive, Judge and Greg Daniels. The pilot was not picked up as a series. David Herman recalled in an interview that the pilot was very funny and full of social commentary but that "I don't think they [Fox] wanted a Catholic priest going around shooting at people."

Q: What's the name of that kid who talks like Butt-Head? What about the big kid with the weird hair?
A: The kid who talks in a deep monotone voice ("I peed in some kid's locker") is named Stuart Dooley. Mike Judge does his voice, of course. The big kid with the ponytail is named Clark Peters. His wheezy voice is provided by Pamela Segall Adlon.
