** Some network television stations which air ''King of the Hill'' in syndication pulled "The Peggy Horror Picture Show" from rotation following the suicide of Leelah Alcorn, as the episode contains outdated, confusing, and incorrect information about the transgender community.[[note]]For example, it calls a closeted transgender woman a "drag queen," when a drag queen is someone who only does it for performance; Carolyn lived her public life as a woman and preferred female pronouns.[[/note]]

* ExecutiveMeddling: FOX executives demanded the writers drop or at least scale back the recurring plotlines for syndication reasons, which accounts in part for the NegativeContinuity in later episodes. It's also claimed that in later seasons, network executives interfered to the extent that they were demanding rewrites while episodes were being animated.

* PostScriptSeason: Seasons 12 and 13. The Season 11 finale is explicitly designed as a ''series'' finale, with the Lucky-Luanne wedding, cameo appearances by everyone from Cotton and John Redcorn to Hank's half-brother Junichiro and Chuck Mangione, and the ending with Hank and the gang drinking beer in the alley. Then Fox decided to renew the show for two more years. YMMV whether or not this benefited the show. Some people think the show should have ended after Luanne's wedding, while others think "To Sirloin with Love" was a better ending, as most of the series centered on Hank and Bobby trying to be father and son and "To Sirloin with Love" showed that Bobby does have a hobby that doesn't bore him or disappoint/embarrass Hank.
