Trope that doesn't exist.

* Because as mentioned, people go through puberty at diferent rates. And as for how joseph could be so tall yet Bobby not... well, that's plausible. When I was in high school, there was a 10th grader who was about as tall as [[YuGiOh Yugi Motou]], sounded like he was ten years old, and he was older than my brother. When I attended my brother's graduation two years later, and they called the short kid's name... he's freaking ''six foot six'' and his voice was barely recognizable. Puberty sometimes hits people really fast.

* The title card's a reference to American Gothic. The couple there look just as depressed.

** Ever see Cotton take Peggy to the VFW for the first time? He introduces everyone inside as either Fatty, Stinkie, or Brooklyn (save for one guy called Doc). Presumably he just defaults to calling bigger guys Fatty.

* Although on the other hand, shows like ''TheMaryTylerMooreShow'', ''TheBobNewhartShow'', ''{{Taxi}}'', and to pull a current example, ''TheBigBangTheory'' seemed to be funny with only one ButtMonkey each (Ted Baxter, Mr Carlin, Louie De Palma, Sheldon Cooper) apiece, and none of them really 'unlikable' per se.

In one of Cotton's war stories, he details how Fatty was killed by sharks in the Pacific Ocean after their transport was attacked by a Zero and later explains how he beat to death a number of Japanese soldiers with Fatty's leg. However, in "Serves Me Right for Giving General George S. Patton the Bathroom Key", one of Cotton's demands to Hank is to deliver an item (I can't remember what it was) to Fatty, seemingly under the impression that he's still alive. Even stranger, even though this episode reveals that Fatty is indeed dead, he is apparently survived by a son, "Little Fatty", which seems unlikely considering Fatty's age before being deployed. Even if he did have a son before deployment, he should be somewhere in his 60's, and yet he doesn't appear to be much older than Hank. What gives?

[[WMG: Bill's Injury]] In the episode where Bill gets trainers to help him get in shape for his physical exam, he overdoes it and injures himself on a weight machine. After he gets medical treatment, the doctor says that whatever he did to himself doesn't have a name, but that his internal organs "became external". Except... it does have a name? Rectal prolapse. Why did the doctor claim that Bill's condition didn't have a term?

** If you take a look at the Vision Quest episode, you could say Dale's subconscious already knows. In that episode, he has a vision that a bulky, faceless Native American man (like John Redcorn) fathered Joseph. Now, unless magic and spirits are real in the KingOfTheHill universe, Dale has to at least subconsciously know John Redcorn is Joseph's father for him to have that vision. It's possible that those thoughts have been pushed to the back of his head because knowing outright would be too distressing. Dale isn't the most mentally stable guy around.

* I really enjoy KingOfTheHill, but one thing that bothers me was the episode where Peggy unknowingly makes friends with a fashionable cross-dresser who goes by the name Caroline. It wasn't the episode itself that bugged me, but rather, the fact that we never see Caroline in later episodes. I thought "Caroline" was kind of a fun character, I would've liked to see more of her. (him?)
