From the feverish mind of Mike Judge comes this offbeat animated series about redneck Texan Hank Hill, the well-intentioned but misguided patriarch of the Hill clan, which includes Hank's headstrong wife, Peggy, and aspiring comedian son, Bobby. A propane salesman by trade, Hank spends much of his free time downing beers with his misfit buddies in the alley behind his house -- until a family crisis inevitably crops up.

Summary of Season 1 (1997) - 3 discs

One of the most consistently funny -- and often overlooked -- shows on television features series creator Mike Judge voicing Hank Hill, a proud, somewhat slow-moving Texan with a good heart. When he's not at work selling propane or at home with his wife, Peggy (Kathy Najimy) and their son, Bobby (Pamela Segall), he's hanging around and sipping beer by his back fence with the hilarious assortment of people he calls his friends.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the family in this long-running animated series lives in a lower-middle class Texas community where men drink beer, gossip, and watch TV. The humor satirizes and glorifies life in Texas and is geared toward adults. Hank does try to teach a moral lesson to Bobby whenever something goes awry, which could provide topics for discussion -- but there are better programs for kids to learn from. Teens with mature humor will enjoy and "get it."

Sexual Content

Luanne is bursting with hormones, as are other cast members. Some innuendo and references to pornography.


Not applicable


"Jackass," "hell," "bastards," etc.

Social Behavior

Hank is the upstanding citizen in his community, but everyone else is bound to misbehave. The characters' sometimes-questionable stances on issues are mined for laughs.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

The men drink beer whenever they can pull the cooler out of the garage. Dale is always smoking. Illegal drug use is alluded to but looked down upon.
