According to creator Mike Judge, King of the Hill’s origins date back to his student days. “My good friend and I were doing something like two babbs sitting around drinking beer and talking about what’s on the news or something like that,” Judge recalled during an interview with IGN. “I had a newspaper route that was sort of in the workers’ area with a lot of Texas transplants, so I was surrounded by characters like that early on.”
Naturally, many creators are inspired by childhood memories when it comes to bringing some of their TV show and movie ideas to life, and it seems that Judge isn’t afraid to mine his own.
