    Back around 2002 I was in a metal band in Houston, we played a small club formerly known as The Backstage a lot back then, watched a lot of local bands play there whenever we weren't playing. One night there was this one band that broke into the full intro to King of the Hill as like an interlude in between their songs, and I mean they just fucking nailed it, the guitar solo and everything. One of my favorite little moments from back then. You had to been there, it was awesome.

    i think it gets funnier as you get older

    it seems to have a curve where you have to watch it enough to figure out most of the characters are supposed to be boring and lame. which people werent conditioned to after getting into the simpsons, futurama, family guy and south park

    I wouldn't say "boring and lame", just more real world. The show is essentially a live action sitcom, that happens to be animated. There aren't too many "cartoon" aspects to it, and I think that's where the disconnect came, with kids. You could make the same show, more or less, without animation. You couldn't do that with something like The Simpsons, where it relies on a lot of "cartoon" rules.

    KOTH is one of kind in that respect.

    Very much underrated. I love the realism, the fact that it could easily be done live action using unaltered scripts. It's also one of the few animated shows that doesn't rely on hamfisted characterization.

    Sucks Britanny Murphy and Tom Petty both passed away. If they reboot it I wonder if they cam find people who can mimic their voices.

    It's my favourite of them all. I don't like noisy/shouty cartoons, dries me out. I like how chilled KOTH is while being subtly funny.

    I did not appreciate it the way I should have when I was younger. I grew up and saw a completely different show.
