Gone with the Windstorm - S9-E13

Continuity mistake: Just after Dale, Nancy and Peggy get past the police blockade in the news van there is an overhead shot of the van and you can see Dale doesn't have his fake moustache on anymore. The next shot he is taking off the fake moustache.

Mutual of Omabwah - S9-E8

Deliberate mistake: Why wouldn't Hank just use a credit card to cover the outstanding payment he owes on his insurace? It was established in the episode Rich Hank, Poor Hank that Hank has an emergency credit card and could easily use that and would be covered immediately. His panic over not having insurance would outweigh any problems he might have with using his credit card and the fact that he is dealing with an insurance company there is no conceivable way they wouldn't accept a credit card or ask if he has a credit card to cover the payment. The mistake seems to be deliberate as it sets the story up for Hank going somewhat over the edge with protecting the house.

Arlen City Bomber - S9-E10

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Lane Pratley comes into the woman's changing room after the first game he is holding the player's cheques by his waist. When the shot changes to a closeup of him the cheques have instantly moved to Lane holding them next to his chest.

Dale to the Chief - S9-E5

Other mistake: At the end of the episode we see Hank at the motor vehicle office alone which means he drove himself there. Dale later comes in and helps to get Hank's license changed back to male. Afterwards Hank gets into Dale's van and puts on his seat belt implying Dale is driving him home. Hank should have gotten into his own truck.

Suggested correction: Or he could have taken a bus or a taxi or had someone else drop him off or even walked there.


Death Buys a Timeshare - S9-E3

Plot hole: During a heatwave, the Hills are dying from the heat and even look for a pool to swim in to cool off.This makes no sense, they live in a ranch house which would have central air or at worst some window air conditioners.


A Rover Runs Through It - S9-E1

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode, after Peggy's mother calls, Hank says "What's it been? Twenty years?" But they spoke with Peggy's mother during the events of the episode "Happy Hanks Giving." Hank spoke to her on the phone, Peggy shouted at the phone, and Hank commented on Mrs. Platter not approving of propane.

Yard, She Blows! - S9-E4

Other mistake: In this episode, Peggy is terrible at gardening. In the fourth season, she brought flowers to the man who was making foot fetish videos. She said that the flowers were "so pretty" and were from her "own garden."

Hank: Calm down, Boomhauer! I can't understand a word you're saying.

The Wedding of Bobby Hill - S3-E14

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".

More trivia for King of the Hill

Answer: If you are talking about the "Thou shalt not do this, thou shalt not do that" song, I'm not sure if a song like that actually exists. Green Day, the guest voices on the episode, might have just been improvising to keep their appearance from being too obvious.
