King of the Hill" Cancelled
[IMG]tvfodder.com/archives/King-Hill.jpg[/IMG]Apparently, propane and propane accessories aren't as hot as they used to be. Fox has cancelled its long-running animated sitcom, "King of the Hill," after 13 seasons.
The animated adventures of Hank Hill, his family and friends, first hit the airwaves in 1997. Over the years, it has showcased the vocal talents of Kathy Najimy, Brittany Murphy, Stephen Root, Breckin Meyer, Tom Petty, and even one of its creators, Mike Judge.
Both Judge and co-creator Greg Daniels have moved onto other projects. Judge is currently working on a new 'toon titled "The Goode Family," while Daniels wears many hats behind the scenes of NBC's "The Office." There's no word on whether the cancellation has anything to do with Fox's two new upcoming cartoons: "Sit Down, Shut Up" and the "Family Guy" spin-off "The Cleveland Show."
The New York Times says that "King" should reach the 250-episode mark around May, with the finale coming around summer. For now, "King of the Hill" airs every Sunday at 8:30 p.m. (EST) on Fox. -- Rachel Cericola
