King of the Hill ran from 1997 to 2010- 13 seasons and 259 episodes. I know The Simpsons have to be ranked as being better but my favorite animated series in recent times would be King of the Hill. My Mount Rushmore of Favorite Animated Television Series would be- The Flintstones/ King of the Hill/ The Simpsons and The Jetsons.
One of the attractions King of the Hill has always had for me is the realism in it. These seem like real people to me. I have met a number of Boomhauer’s in my life for example. The show was also not political which was a relief. It was a very realistic show. The Simpsons with all its greatness never seemed that way to me. Is The Simpsons still on? Isn’t it time to close shop on that?
I bought this t-shirt at a mall in Kalamazoo, Michigan about 20 years ago not long after the series first aired. I need to watch this show again- it has been years and I haven’t seen the last few years of it.
