King of the Hill

King of the Hill is a long-running, satirical US television comedy animated series in a similar vein to The Simpsons and depicts the life of a typical American family, the Hills, in the fictional town of Arlen, Texas. Unlike most other animated series it attempts to retain realism. It is broadcast weekly on the Fox Network.

The series follows the life of the Hills, a conservative God-fearing family, and proud Texans, dealing with different aspects of the modern world -- women's liberation, female pastors, sex education, proctological examinations, Asian American neighbors, social workers, traffic school, addiction support groups, et al.

The series is the brainchild of Beavis and Butthead creator Mike Judge, a former resident of Garland, Texas, possibly the inspiration for the fictional town name Arlen. After a successful run of Beavis and Butthead on MTV, he went on to co-create King of the Hill with former Simpsons producer/writer, Greg Daniels.
