‘King of the Hill’ leads animation boom at Hulu

Hanks, Hulu!

The streaming service announced Thursday that it has acquired the rights to stream all 13 seasons of the Fox animated comedy series “King of the Hill.”

The Texas-set sitcom aired from 1997 to 2010 and centered on the dysfunctional Hill family of Arlen, Texas — Hank (Mike Judge), Peggy (Kathy Najimy), Bobby (Pamela Adlon) and Luanne (Brittany Murphy).

While it never quite reached the pop-cultural highs of “The Simpsons” or “South Park,” Mike Judge’s show was a consistent performer for Fox during the ’90s and aughts.

“King of the Hill” hasn’t appeared on any streaming service since 2013.

The show coming to Hulu was part of a broader deal with 20th Century Fox that also brought on episodes of “American Dad,” “Family Guy,” “Bob’s Burgers,” “Futurama” and “The Cleveland Show.”
