Are you referring to the fact that his underwear is showing? Or the fact that he has stomach hair? You think thats worse than having a large tattoo of a cartoon character on your arm?

It'd be really nice to get some real closure on the Dale/Nancy/Joseph/John Redcorn story. I mean, its kind of stretching credibility that Joseph hasn't figured it out even taking into account the fact that he's not... smart.

What I'd really like is for Dale to admit that he's known for years but he just didn't want to lose his marriage to Nancy (who he really obviously loves.)

But there were 2 episodes with the superstars of country music. One was where they played themselves, and the other was when they played truckers in the episode where Hank drove the semi from Arlen to Arizona.

Also, Chuck Mangione and Kid Rock.

This has to be simultaneously the best Hank and the best Dale moment.

Dale: So it turns out I'm not the actual Dale Gribble, but a clone of him. The original Dale Gribble is a super-warrior from the year 2087. The second me, i.e. I, was created to help the first me fight the invading Mongol armies.

Hank: Dale, that's asinine, and here's four reasons why. First, you're not gonna clone a super-warrior out of a guy who can't even win a thumb-wrestling match. Two, you've spent your life swearing that the robots will eliminate the clones by the year 2010, so which is it, robots or clones? Three, you've already said you sympathize with the invading Mongolians of 2087, so you'd be the last one they'd send to fight them. And four, if you were from the future, you would have seen this coming.

"The Incredible Hank" may be my favorite episode - Hank going through second puberty is too drat funny, as is Joseph's obsession with wrestling Dale without warning.

Hmm...what would weirdos be doing near the gas station...

I think 14 years was a good run for KotH, and it was nice of Fox to support them for so long but ordering a final run of episodes then refusing to air them, that's cold. As is canceling the DVD run.

Narrowing down a single favorite episode would definitely be tough. As lame as it sounds, I have always felt that I can really identify with this show and while I'm going to be sad to see it go, I know that it's honestly for the best. It really upsets me how awful the treatment of this show has been. I mean there have been times over the past few years when I would miss episodes simply because I had no idea when they were going to actually be aired. I will say that an animated show lasting as long as KOTH did is awesome, especially compared to how awful almost every other animated show on television is.

I also like when they setup Cotton and Kahn's first meetup. You think at first that they are going to go the one dimensional route and have Cotton view all Asians as Japanese, but they don't.

Hank: This is my new neighbor.
Dale: He's Japanese.
Cotton: No he ain't. He's Laotian. Ain't you, Mr. Kahn?

It's all the more amusing because Toby Huss does the voice for both Kahn and Cotton.

The only problem with Cotton episodes is that is often gets Peggy saying "Eewow Heemah" and I hate that. It just sounds so stupid because even the Japanese say Iwa Jima.

I realized I don't hate Peggy, i just hate when she says something horribly incorrect and is about it. Probably because I grew up with a guy that was just like that, and I wanted to pop him in the nose every day.

Seriously, I always felt really bad for Bill. He seriously had everything in high school, but eventually just turned into a sad middle aged man.

Classic scene and example of perfectly executed character humor. The consistency in actions of all characters is one of the show's crowning achievements.

RIP Just Lose it feat. King of the Hill. Despite foiling the entire DVD line release, Fox aggressively strips any KOTH poo poo off of youtube with vigor. Just search for actual clips of the show - basically nothing on there.

I don't feel bad for him at all. He is usually given opportunity to be happy and either dismisses it or realizes it doesn't make him happy. Bill will always go status quo. I mean there were at least 2 episodes where he got a little healthier and more muscular only to lose it all by next episode.

Bill does not want to be happy.

I've heard quite a few people begrudingly watch KotH on Adult Swim because they're sooo bored and NOTHING else is ooonnn and end up turning into real fans of the show who regretted missing it the first time around. Even that backhanded kind of appreciation of the show lets you know that the fanbase is growing a little. I don't think it'll ever be as explosively vocal as the Simpsons or Family Guy, but KotH was never the kind of show that asked for it anyway.

Favorite episodes: The one where Bobby goes to clown college, the one where Bobby hangs out with Ward the goon, The one where Khannie and Joseph hit puberty... drat I guess I like a lot of Bobby-centric episodes. But "Nancy's Boys" is probably my favorite episode of all

This is basically how I became a fan. I hated the show and hadn't watched it in years. On New Years or whenever they had that marathon, I watched it and fell in love. Now I watch it every night from 1-2 on one of my fox channels and 2-3 on AS. I really hate myself for never giving it another chance

This is me too. In my defense, I still think the early episodes are painful to watch and can completely understand why a middle-school aged me stopped watching. Had I known it would improve so dramatically over time I would have resumed watching years ago.

I'll watch this with pride, and hopefully while eating some meat grilled with clean, energy-efficient propane.

My personal favorite was the "Wizards of Arlen". I admit that I occasionally use the line "score one for the acolyte!" in an appropriately ironic way, which, of course, confuses most everybody.

I also sympathize with the Peggy-haters out there. The main problem is that even in the episodes where she gets upstaged, she still comes out on top. That RenFair episode is the best example. She's a case of the writers doing too good of a job--I can appreciate the humor but still think she's an awful character. It also takes an episode or two to truly get how much of a blowhard she is.

This is the reason why the episode where Peggy leads a field trip to Mexico and accidentally kidnaps a Mexican girl is probably one of my absolute favorites of the series, if only for her testimony in court at the end.

I also love the one where Hank gets emotional about his truck dying solely because of Bobby's line, "To the Flowers of Time!" Oh, and the one where Bobby starts kicking everyone in the nuts, cause of the whole "That's my purse! I don't know you!"

Something I'm curious about though: I'm pretty sure I've seen every episode of this show, and while there are definitely episodes that I love a lot more than others, I don't think I consider a single episode bad. And I'm just curious if there's any sort of consensus of most hated KotH episodes (aside from "The Substitute Spanish Prisoner," apparently).

I will say, though, that the hardest episodes for me to watch, from a main plot standpoint, are Bill-centric ones. I didn't mind them too much at first, but after the one from either this season or the last where he wound up with diabetes, he just sorta crossed the line from an "I feel bad for him" sort of pathetic to a "there's absolutely no hope for this whatsoever" sort of pathetic. After that episode, watching any other Bill-centric one just doesn't work for me anymore. Aside from the one where he goes crazy and thinks that he's his ex-wife. That one's still gold to me. I still don't consider them bad episodes though, since I usually like everything else in them aside from him.
