King of the Hill is a criminally underrated comedy, which is crazy, since it was created by one of the most brilliant comedic minds of our time, Mike Judge (Beavis and Butthead, Office Space, Silicon Valley, etc). Like most of Judge’s comedy, it is derived from everyday characters with ultra-specific roles that viewers can relate to and recognize. Which is why it’s so easy to love characters like Bobby Hill, who like most of us, struggles with the love-hate relationship of wanting to do nothing but eat food that is awful for you. For that reason, I’ve gathered some of the best things Bobby said about food throughout King of the Hill‘s 13 seasons on Fox and provided advice on when you can appropriately recite those quotes in your own life.
