Good for teens upwards

King of The Hill is mainly an adult show, not due to content but due to the themes being set (largely) from the adults perspective. It does contain some mild swearing and racist terms, but these are outweighed by the context and messages. There are good role models in the show, Hank and Peggy despite their old values do have good solid messages behind them. One episode on sexual education has a lot of sexual language and graphic details.. however this is again justified by the overall message of the show, but not suitable for young children. As said before, ' hon**y' 'cra**er' 'pi**' 's**t' and 'bas**rd' make their way into a good few episodes. Drinks and smoking are a constant theme and in one episode Hank makes his son smoke a carton of cigarettes as a punishment for smoking one. Also Hank and his friends are always drinking and smoking in the alley as they chat.

Super funny

Hilarious witty comedy with some inappropriate references. It's super funny I always love to watch it at like hotels and stuff. You have to be about 11 to find funny but if you get the jokes it's terrific

Advised for MATURE teenagers and older

King of the Hill is a show about a redneck named Hank and his family and neighbors. There are several characters with different back stories. Each character has something good about them, like standing up between right and wrong. There are several acts of violence (such as a boy accidentally walking into a lady's self defense class and learning to kick other people in their testicles) and threats that you might find inappropriate. There is also a chunk of sex (one kid sees a girl's rear end and when he accidentally leaks it to another kid, that kid attempts to look at the same rear end with the other kid attempting to stop him and they accidentally see another girl who accuses them of being 'peeping toms' and other near sexual encounters). On language, there are threats like "I'LL KICK YOUR *SS!" There is plenty of drugs (one guy always smokes and 4 men are usually seen drinking beer in the intro). Other than that, this show is appropriate for anyone who will not repeat or recreate anything that is done in this show

I love this show!

King of the Hill is one of my favorite adult cartoons, in fact, i'm watching it right now! It's so funny, I love the animation, I love the character's voices, and it's just a perfect cartoon.

Great show!!!

Hank is a very outstanding citizen and shows great leadership. He isn't afraid to stand up for himself and always keeps a promise. The other people are iffy. Dale doesn't show much bad citizenship except for the fact that he always smokes. Peggy is a good model. Everyone else could be sometimes bad but mostly good. This show deals with real life problems in your average suburbs and teaches you how deal with it. It is good for everyone to know about these problems and can actually help you. It's a good thing for your kids to be watching because it deals with lifen not fairies, ninjas, ghosts, web show hosts, performing arts rising stars, singing pop stars and etc.

Terrible but appropriate!

This show is totally ok for 4+. 3 and under shouldn't see it. It has no bad stuff except for mild, very mild language. But, it's a terrible show! In the theme song even, there's no enthusiasm!.

Great TV show from Mike Judge

King of the Hill is a very funny comedy from Mike Judge. Although some plots involve inappropriate elements, it depends on if you can discriminate between good and bad things. It really depends on maturity.

May be too mature for younger teens.

Rated: ON 14+ IFFY 13- OFF 7- for some mild violence, crude humor, sexual themes, drug content and language.

Extremely well written at times, but apparently misunderstood as to why by this clueless site.

It seems as if you're making this show out to have more sexual innuendo than it really does. In reality, innuendo is pretty rare here, and is only in a few episodes. It's also the sort of jokes that will completely pass over kids' heads. And Hank Hill is a VERY good role model. He curses when he's mad at people for good reasons, but otherwise tries to be the best person he can possibly be. Also, Luanne isn't bursting with hormones! If that were the case, she'd be dating a lot of different boyfriends all the time! Instead, she's just plain hyperactive. And even if you were right, this is, again the sort of stuff that completely passes over kids' heads. Also, I would compare this show to the Klasky-Csupo series. Like all of the Klasky-Csupo shows except for the extremely awful Rugrats, and, depending on whether or not you are prejudiced against science-fiction, AAHH!!! Real Monsters, this show is very down to earth, deals with realistic situations, shows a sense of morality, and makes you wonder why this show was animated in the first place. And yet, there some humor in the series, but it's the sort of humor that is rather mild in terms of hard-hittingness and doesn't get in the way of the episode's main plot. So, anyway, I believe that this show should be on Nick@Nite, not Adult Swim. It could possibly make up for them firing Klasky-Csupo for being realistic. And this show is truly a family show in every sense.

not very good,fine for 8+

To tell you the truth I don't really like this show. It is not very good. But (despite the tv-14 rating) if your kids want to watch it and they are over the age of 8, it's fine for them.

Extremely racy, but hilarious show has nudity, drugs, and and comical violence.

In this show there is very strong constant racy innuendo, references, and content. A women's husband dreams about barbecuing naked with another women, breasts, and bottoms are seen. There is also extremely vulgar jokes, implied racy content, and several love scenes with graphic nudity in every episode. There is lots of drug and alcohol use, people get drunk and fall over. There is also tons of swearing including lots of uses of f--k s--t c--ksucker c--t d--k b---h and more. This show is hilarious, and entertaining but its bad for kids under 17. My rating:R for strong racy content/graphic nudity throughout, pervasive language, racy references, and some alcohol and drug use.

King of the Hill is a more tame adult swim show, in my opinion.

King of the Hill is a good show and has some mild swearing (a**, d**n) and most episodes show the guys loitering and drinking beer.
