The ‘King of the Hill’ Pitch Trailer Is A Perfect Time Capsule

Fans of King of the Hill will spot an Easter Egg in the trailer that wouldn’t be explained until after the show first concluded — Boomhauer’s line in the pencil test is taken straight from the famous voicemail that Judge received during his years working on Beavis and Butt-Head that inspired the creation of the character itself. Judge’s description of the voicemail during a 2011 appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! alongside Zach Galifianakis is a must-watch for anyone interested in King of the Hill.

When King of the Hill returns on Hulu, we hope that Hank and his family will finally secure one of those sponsorships that he’s been eyeing since before his show even went on air — though, at 66 years old, hopefully he’s not gnawing on those Wonder Bread bacon grease sandwiches anymore. Cotton may have gotten by without knees, but Hank still needs a heart.
