9. 'King of the Hill'
Five years after Beavis and Butt-head became cultural sensations, Mike Judge proved he had a little more depth to him when he co-created King of the Hill. It's the story of a mild-mannered propane salesmen in small-town Texas dealing with his young family and assorted oddball neighbors. That might not sound like the most enticing premise in the world, but Judge and former Simpsons writer Greg Daniels populated the landscape of King of the Hill with amazing characters and managed to stretch it out for 13 seasons.
