Hank Hill is the main character of the animated comedy series called King of the Hill. He is voiced by Mike Judge. He lives in Arlen, Texas, often hangs out with his best friends Boomhauer, Bill, and Dale Gribble while drinking beer in the alley behind his house, and is the assistant manager of Strickland Propane.


Hank is depicted as a good-natured and wise father, and has a bit of anger issues. He sometimes gets purposely mistakened for doing things he did not do such as renting pornographic video cassettes and hitting his son with a Baseball bat.


Hey, I am a finely-tuned ex-high school athlete; I've spent four years holding guys like you upside down over toilets!
~ Hank fighting with Cane Skretteburg and his henchmen.
Now you listen here. You see that boy? That's my boy; and if you ever try to take him away so god I'll tear you a new one bigger than the Grand Canyon!
~ Hank threatening Anthony Page if he took Bobby away.
You quotin' that twig-boy at me?!?
~ Hank humiliated by Bobby when he tells him what the Child Protective Services guy said.
Dale, you giblet head! We live in Texas. It's already 110 in the summer; and if it gets one degree hotter, I'm gonna kick your ***.
~ Hank talking to Dale.
