Episode 166: King of the Hill Matters is sponsored by MANSCAPED.com
King of the Hill is the anime of Texas. Yes that’s the meme, but while this slice of life adult comedy may seem like a large hyperbole of the state and its people, truth is, it’s pretty spot on. In this episode, we dive into the importance of the series, its success, and talk about why it hits the nail on the Texas head. And we even discuss how the series looks at the more conservative elements of Texan culture through a lens of growth.
Plus, we do it all with our first guest of 2021 Alex! A frequent guest on our adult animation episodes, he adds a different perspective on the series from outside the state. And of course, we talk about our favorite moments from the series.
If you’re unfamiliar with the series, it takes place in Texas and follows the life of propane salesman Hank Hill, who lives with his substitute-teacher wife Peggy, wannabe comedian son Bobby, and deadbeat niece Luanne. Hank has strikingly stereotypical views about God and country but is unpretentious and sees the world simply.
