King of the hill is a animated comedy show centered around Hank Hill and his family. Hank’s relationship with his son Bobby is a frequent source of comedy on the show. Hank, a man’s man whose interests include football and propane, is often at a loss when it comes to dealing with Bobby due to his own discomfort with emotions (his own and those of others) and Bobby’s quirky personality.
Bobby’s “girly” aspects often prove the most worrying to Hank. Bobby likes dolls (troll dolls in particular), listens to boy bands, enrolls in home economics instead of shop, and takes up rose gardening at one point. He also squeals like a girl.
In one episode, Hank takes Bobby to the local YMCA so he can take boxing classes to help him deter bullies. Upon finding the boxing classes closed, Bobby goes to a women’s self defense class where he learns to kick attackers in the testicles while yelling “That’s my purse! I don’t know you!” and uses the technique to deter and eventually strike fear in the hearts of the bullies. Hank finds out about it and is horrified that Bobby took women’s self defense and has kicked bullies “in the fellas”. Hank himself falls to Bobby’s groin kick while trying to teach Bobby how to “fight like a man”.
King of The Hill utilizes Hank and Bobby’s awkward relationship as a source of comedy. This awkwardness stems from Hank’s rigid views on what is “normal” for a boy clashing with Bobby’s bizarre, often feminine behavior.
