Join Hank Hill, his family and their neighbours in Arlen

King of the Hill depicts the life and times of Hank Hill, his family and their neighbours in the fictional suburb of Arlen, Texas, in the heartland of America.

A hard-working, loyal family man and proud Texan, Hank is assistant manager of Strickland Propane. He's an average Joe 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 Rock of Gibraltar is his wife Peggy. Peggy sees herself as a true renaissance woman: substitute Spanish teacher, journalist, fast-pitch softball hurler, local Boggle champion and notary public. Hank and Peggy's pride and joy is their 13-year-old son, Bobby.

Hank is the undisputed alpha male among his neighbourhood buddies, Dale, Bill and Boomhauer. 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.

In most episodes, you'll find Hank and the boys drinking beer around the barbecue. This season, Peggy goes into real estate, and Bobby takes on the establishment at school.
