King of the Hill is an American animated sitcom created by Mike Judge and Greg Daniels that aired on Adult Swim from January 1, 2009, to June 29, 2018. The series has regained syndication with FXX and Adult Swim on November 22, 2021.[1]

Starting in 2011, cable channel would begin to air bumpers for the animated sitcom prior to the airing of episodes.

These bumpers would promote a fictional company or occasionally a real company (such as Hyundai and Lowe's). An unknown narrator would name the company and give their motto, usually saying "Tonight's King of the Hill episode is brought to you by (company name) (company motto)." Throughout the bumper, "Prissy Pussy" by Werner Tautz would play. Most bumpers followed this format unless otherwise noted. The companies included:

  • The Arlen Barn
  • The Arlen Advocate
  • The Arlen Bystander (uses a guitar theme)
  • Channel 84
  • Cover-to-Cover Books
  • Dale's Dead Bug
  • Heimlich County Junior College
  • Hotel Arlen
  • Get In Get Out
  • Goobersmooches
  • Juggstore Cowboys
  • La Grunta Inn and Resort
  • Mega Lo Mart
  • Staubach Elementary School
  • Strickland Propane (there are at least three different bumpers, each with Hank Hill (Mike Judge) giving an original voiceover)
  • Sugarfoot's
  • Thaterton Fuels
  • Waffle Hut

These bumpers stopped playing by 2014. However, YouTube user tkrewtmre tRKEW't KRw@KTReWKTrw TGKFREW uploaded ten of the bumpers, albeit with their watermark in the corner. Pokematic also found The Arlen Advocate bumper (with Hank saying, "closed captioning sponsored in part by"), along with the bumpers for Strickland Propane (where Hank talks about how propane is used in life), Waffle Hut, Cover to Cover Books, The Arlen Barn, Thaterton Fuels and The Arlen Bystander (which transitions to an Arby's bumper). He also found closed captioning bumpers sponsored by GEICO and uploaded them to his Dailymotion channel without a watermark.
