This show is about Hank Hill and his life with his family and friends. Hank works for a propane company; propane is his life. Bobby, Hank's son, is a dimwit. Luanne, Peggy's niece and the Hill's family live-in, goes to beauty school and is also a dimwit. When Hank is home, he is usually found with his friends standing by the fence and drinking a beer. Boomhauer talks so fast with his drawl that it sounds like total gibberish, but somehow Hank and the guys understand him. Dale is completely paranoid of everything and a follower. Bill is a lonely unintelligent man that misses his ex-wife and gets depressed easily. There are always a new predicament that a member of the Hill family or one of the friends get into and the show revolves around that one topic.
