    I cannot get enough of this show. I own seasons 1-6 on DVD and watch 7-13 on Netflix every single morning. It's got to be one of the most quotable shows ever made.

    It took a long while to grow on me, but King of the Hill is now one of my favorite shows. Absolutely love the characters, and crack up on the simplest of lines or gestures.

    I like how realistic the art style is, too, especially with the kids. Most animated shows use essentially shrunken adults for children, which looks awkward since in real life they don't move or behave in the same ways. Incredibly minor details, but they go a long way.

    The show went down hill for it's whole run. So much that I stopped watching it when it got really bad. Which was around season 6

    Dale is my fav charecter followed by Cotton, Hank, Kahn, Boomhauer, Bobby and Bill.

    Peggy though is really unlikeable.

    I consider it one of the best American cartoons, up there with Batman and Avatar.

    I don't even understand why my dad watches it. I don't really like how they animated some of the characters.

    Hahahah, priceless.


    Seriously though, this show might not be for everyone (like most things), but I've always loved it because of not only was it about as realistic as we've gotten from a cartoon comedy, but it was also one that built so many characters so well, and without even needing to ignore others to do so. Like, it might sound silly, but growing up with this show was almost like growing up with them, and everyone (even guys like Dale) were completely believable as what they were.

    I love King of The Hill. It's one of those shows where I've seen every episode 5 times, and I STILL watch it every night before going to sleep.

    I'm interested, as long as Mike Judge is involved.

    I do miss Bobby.

    This is a weird show for me. I like it well enough, but it rarely ever makes me laugh. Like, I get all the jokes & all the parts where I'm *supposed* to laugh. I just don't.
