I actually thought it had been cancelled long ago!

It wasn't bad for the first couple of seasons, but to me it declined soon after. Can't remember very much of it, though. Shows you just how long ago British terrestrial channels stopped airing it regularly.

Me neither. Dunno why, maybe because I never liked the art direction.

I'm not really affected by this cancellation, I might be inspired to start re watching some old episodes though.

I didn't like it. Well maybe a little. But all things must come to an end.

Wasn't this show a spinoff from Beavis and Butthead? If so it lasted a lot longer than B&B did.

Very good show, had it's run. I'll miss it, but there are plenty of re-runs.

I'm sad to see KOTH go too, but it's probably for the best. You have to admit that every new episode kinda had the same plot as previous episodes; "Peggy/Bobby/Luanne/Bill" gets into a mess with some kind of "jackass", whom Hank has to personally "deal" with in order to help "Peggy/Bobby/Luanne/Bill". Hopefully Mike Judge's new show "The Goode Family" will be..."good".

I never liked King of the Hill too much, I didn't think it was funny, but if Family Guy is cancelled the third time, I will go crazy!

They still have yet to air the "Something, something, darkside" episode too iirc.

Not really a spinoff of Beavis and Butthead. Created by the same guy and Hank Hill is based off of a younger version of the same real life guy that Tom Anderson in B&B is based off of in Mike Judge's life. Actually, so is almost everyone in his creations. They all had some inspiration. I watched king of the hill if there was nothing else on.

I have every DVD released of beavis and butthead, though.

What is even more disturbing is that I can actually mimic the voices a good number of the B&B cast. Some of KOTH as well--not long enough to do a real good impersonation. Since I grew up with 'em. I can do Tom/Hank, B&B (both versions of both characters), Principal MacVicar (both versions), Mr. VanDreisen, The P.A.T. guy and his clone son, and several others.

It obviously has nothing to do with King of the Hill being canceled. [/sarcasm]

Now all that needs to be canceled is The Simpsons and South Park!

No no no, dammit. It's: "What in the hell?!" Like Tom Anderson.

South Park was inspired by Mike Judge. MJ did King Of The Hill and Beavis and Butt-Head. So south park is partially due to MJ.

Simpsons? I grew up with that show.

Thusly, sir, in disagreement and protest, I heaveth a dead raccoon at thee, for thy wish that these shows be cancelled!

They are representative of our opinion on the cancellation of Simpsons AND South Park. We hurled similarly odiferous items as we felt your opinion was.

I keep hearing that KOTH is getting canceled yet the dryness and stupid episodes keep pouring in. TBH if it weren't being canceled already, today's 4th of July episode would have sealed the deal, since when did Hank's mentality drop to Luanne level?

@ Darth Eclipse: we mean this in jest and good fun, dude. You are certainly free to your opinions. I was just hoping you'd pick up on the humor.

I know, and I did lol. I guess you didn't sense my sarcasm.

But can you please explain the raccoon and week old salmon or whatever?

I figure GTA picked up the raccoon from his prankster friend who left one in his trunk.

The salmon came from the science project I found in the my fridge that day(EWWWWWWWW). Just seemed to go well with the raccoon.

Just a note... when you get a salmon out to make for dinner... Make that salmon that night. I tossed the Tupperware in the trash rather than even attempting to clean it....

I always hated this show. I'm glad it's being cancelled. I was getting tired of all the same lame jokes bashing liberals, Canadians, soccer, the french, etc... Perfect conservative mentality.
And don't forget Hank voted for Bush!
I do love The Simpsons though, but I'm afraid they've jumped the shark, and South Park should've been cancelled long ago. The episode with Lucas/Spielberg raping Indy was disgusting.
Just when you thought they couldn't sink any lower...
There's no excuse for that garbage.
