The Hollywood Reporter

King of the Hill was a huge part of our afternoon and evening television schedule when we were growing up. The show ran from 1997 until it was finally wrapped up in 2010, and even though it stretched out until 2010 we are still going to consider it a throwback because of its humble late 90s roots.

Hank, Peggy, Bobby and Luanne made us all remember that regardless of the differences in personalities, family (and possibly propane) is the most important thing in a person's life. With that being said, here are 10 of the best King of the Hill episodes to ever grace the small screen.

1. I Don't Want To Wait For Our Lives To Be Over

When Bobby is offered the keys to his own golf cart while he stays with his grandmother over the summer, he starts to feel like he is becoming a man, but puberty doesn't always go at the same speed for all kids. When Bobby sees Joseph when he comes back from camp, he actually looks like a man, and is even offered a beer at a restaurant, while Bobby is forced to order from the kid's menu. This is one of those turning points in young Bobby Hill's life. Joseph ends up changing so much that they had to change voice actors to make it believable.


2. Keeping Up With Joneses

When Hank catches Bobby smoking a cigarette, he sits his son down and forces him to smoke a whole carton with the hope that it would make him so sick he would never smoke again. What actually ends up happening is that Hank and Peggy pick up smoking again. Luanne is then forced to step in and force them to deal with the withdrawals of quitting.

3. The Powder Puff Boys

Bobby is known to have some comedic ability, which eventually lands him in a spot on the boys Powder Puff cheer leading squad. When the squad is cancelled, Bobby and the other Powder Puffs decide to stage a protest where they dress in drag as female cheer leaders at a football game. Quite a stark stance for the time and audience.

4. Aisle 8A

"It's like a tire fire, trying to put it out makes it worse." This life advice that Hank passes on to Bobby about a woman's time of the month is absolutely hilarious. This episode stems from Hank's fear of visiting the women's feminine hygiene products aisle, and how he has to eventually conquer those fears. It's safe to say men everywhere have a similar fear of some sort.

5. Yankee Hankee

Hank Hill is a proud Texan, and when he applies to receive his "Native Texan" license plate, he is initially denied because they want to see his birth certificate. When he finally approaches his parents about getting it, he finds out that he was born in New York City, specifically in a washroom at Yankee Stadium.

The episodes keep getting better from here.

'Growing Pains' Stars Reunite To Reveal Their Favorite Memories From The Show We All Loved

Watching Growing Pains was one of the highlights of our week when we were kids. The Seaver family meant a lot to us, and it was such a sad day when it ended. Alan Thicke was the amazing patriarch of the family, but it was the kids that we all cared about. Kirk Cameron's character, Mike, was stealing hearts, Tracy Gold's character, Carol, was inspiring students, and Jeremy Miller's character, Ben, was causing trouble, but we loved him anyway. Recently, the three iconic and original Seaver children got together to share some of their favorite moments, and it makes us


Steve From 'Blue's Clues' Wants The Thinking Chair Back, And He's Willing To Fight For It

Hosting a kid's show is probably pretty fun, but I assume it gets a little bit tedious. I mean, even Sherry Lewis must have gotten annoyed by "The Song That Never Ends" after a while. It's a lot of repetition, and reviewing a lot of really basic skills, but I guess seeing the smiles on all those kids faces makes it all worth it. Blue's Clues was one of the biggest kids shows around, and millions of kids would sing along with the "Mail Time" song multiple times a day (much to their parent's annoyance). The host of the show


Fox Really Wants A 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer' Reboot, And Honestly We'd Rather Get Staked

Bad news everyone, the reboot train is still chugging along, picking up unwilling and unwanted passengers along the way. At first the reboots were cute. It was nice to have those little reminders of our past. Sure, tell me what happened to the Tanner sisters, I'll admit I was curious. Or remake my favorite Disney movies with real humans instead of cartoons, because I can very easily ignore those and just watch my old VHS versions a hundred times. I know I shouldn't be too precious with the past, because a lot of things we grew up watching were remakes


There's A New MTV Clothing Line And We Can't Wait To Get Our Hands On It

Hands up if you spent your entire childhood glued to the TV watching all the videos on MTV. Pretty much all of you right? Perfect. Watching MTV was the best. You got to see all of the coolest music videos, which meant that you knew all the best songs, all the newest dance moves, and all the rad styles. As MTV evolved over the years, it kind of lost that magic that made it the go-to location for awesome music, and instead has turned into a reality TV station. Really the only reality show we wanted to watch was The
