Question: Everyone tells Luanne that her father is working on an oil rig, not wanting her to know that he is actually in jail. But she knew that her mother was in jail, so why not tell the truth about her father?

Chosen answer: Couple things, first only Peggy knew the truth about Hoyt (Luanne's father) being in prison and Peggy is the one who said he's on an oil rig. But, Hoyt is Peggy's brother, so she could have been trying to hide the fact her brother is in jail. Lucky (Luanne's husband) deduced Hoyt had been in prison, but seems to be the only other person to know the truth, so when Hoyt went back to prison, he kept Peggy's lie up to spare Luanne. Additionally, Luanne was there when her mother stabbed Hoyt and was arrested, so it's not like someone had to break the news to her and they couldn't hide the fact. With Hoyt, even if Peggy wasn't trying to protect her brother's reputation, she didn't want Luanne, who is a sensitive and emotional young woman, to have to deal with knowing both parents are in jail.

Question: What happened to Peggy's brother (Luanne's father)? Why isn't he around?

Chosen answer: Luanne's father does show up in an entire episode: the 12th season finale 'Life: A Loser's Manual.' He stays with the Hills after getting out of jail. However, Peggy has not told anyone that he has been in prison, not even Hank. They believe that he works on an oil rig. But it all comes to light when he causes trouble and lands Lucky and then himself in jail. By the end of the episode he is headed back to prison. The Hills and Lucky keep up the oil rig charade for Luanne's sake.

Question: I know that this is a cartoon, but could Hank and Peggy really produce a blonde son, with both them having brown hair?

Chosen answer: Parents, even if they each have brown hair and brown eyes, can produce a blonde, blue-eyed child if they both carry the recessive genes for those traits.

Question: Last year, Fox decided to cancel "King of the Hill". Was "Uh-Oh Canada" the final episode or do they have more episodes to come before the show ends?

Question: Two questions about Nancy and John Redcorn's affair. First, has it ever been explained why Nancy had an affair for so long and didn't leave Dale? Her relationship with John seemed to be more than just fun. Also, have the show's creators ever said why they didn't do an episode where Dale finds out about the affair?

Chosen answer: Nancy's and John's relationship was based solely on a physical one. they both seem to agree that THAT was the way things were and nothing more could come from it. The reason why there was never an episode of Dale finding out is cause it was one of the shows running gags.

Show generally

Question: Does anyone know why the seventh season hasn't come out on DVD yet?

Chosen answer: While no official response from Fox as for its long delay, many have speculated the reason is due to the mixed success the series has had on DVD. The second season is generally used as the example, as the DVD set didn't contain any special features whatsoever. Generally a sign the studio is not confident of the DVD's success.

Question: Has there ever been any clear indication that Luanne does or doesn't know about Nancy and John Redcorn's affair?

Chosen answer: There is nothing to specify that she did or didn't know but most of the characters bar Dale and Peggy before she found out, acknowledged it was common knowledge. As Hank pointed out to Peggy about how else do you explain Joseph.

Question: Do we know anything about Bill's parents?

Chosen answer: Much of Bill's background was revealed in the episode "A beer can of desire". He was born to a wealthy Cajun family in Louisiana. Although most of the information about his parents is fairly unknown. Bill has from time to time mentioned that his father was abusive and I believe an alcoholic.

Question: I once saw a clip that shows Luanne excitedly telling Hank, Bill, Dale, and Boomhauer about something, and she jumps up and down until her breasts (which aren't shown) come out of her shirt. Was this a deleted scene or a joke made by the show's creators?

Chosen answer: I believe it was a joke. If I remember correctly the scene was once shown on a tv clip show that was showing goof moments from tv shows. As it is an animation it would have to be a joke.

Question: In the show's theme music, the person who says "Wooooo hoooooo hooooooo" sounds like Dale. Is it him?

Chosen answer: Listening closely, it's not Dale. It's not meant to be anyone from the show.

Question: Why doesn't Hank like Oklahoma? He makes jokes about the state and the people there.

Chosen answer: There is a long standing rivalry between Texas and Oklahoma, so being a loyal Texan he would make fun of Oklahoma.

Question: Did Peggy always live in Montana when she was younger? There's one Valentine's episode where a flashback shows her and Hank in high school.

Chosen answer: This has been somewhat of a topic of discussion amongst fans of the show. Along with the difference with her mother in a couple of shows, its never really been set when she left Montana and by what age as its changed at times. What seems to be at least certain is she was born and for a certain period lived in Montana.

Question: Is there an episode where Dale Gribble discovers that his son, Joseph, is really the biological son of John Redcorn?

Chosen answer: No, despite more than enough clues and close calls. Peggy and John Redcorn are the only ones who have come close to telling Dale that Joseph is not his real son but both Dale and Joseph have never found it out.

Mistakes

When Leanne first arrives, she kisses Luanne, and gets red lipstick marks on her. Later, when Leanne and Luanne are near the bathroom and Leanne says "I knew you would understand" (about Bill), she kisses Luanne, but there are no marks from her lipstick. Even if she mostly kissed Luanne's neck, at least part of some of the marks should show when Luanne turns to leave (after talking to Peggy).

Trivia

During Hanks's conversation with Bobby when he tells him that he will have to marry Luanne, look at the shelf behind Bobby. There is a Bart Simpson doll there. A few years before this was featured the Hill family was in the crowd at one of the pee wee football games in the Simpsons episode "Bart Star".
