Status: Partially Found

Starting in 2011, cable channel Adult Swim began airing bumpers for the animated sitcom King of the Hill prior to the airing of episodes.

These bumpers would promote a fictional company or occasionally a real company (such as Hyundai and Lowe's). An unknown narrator would name the company and give their motto, usually saying "Tonight's King of the Hill episode is brought to you by (company name) (company motto)." Throughout the bumper, "Prissy Pussy" by Werner Tautz would play. Most bumpers followed this format, unless otherwise noted. The companies included:

  • Channel 84
  • Cover-to-Cover Books
  • Heimlich County Junior College
  • Hotel Arlen
  • Get In Get Out
  • The Arlen Advocate
  • Waffle Hut
  • Staubach Elementary School
  • The Arlen Barn
  • The Arlen Bystander (uses a guitar theme)
  • Strickland Propane (there are at least three different bumpers, each with Hank Hill (Mike Judge) giving an original voiceover)
  • Sugarfoot's
  • Dale's Dead Bug
  • Thaterton Fuels
  • Goobersmooches
  • La Grunta Inn and Resort
  • Juggstore Cowboys
  • Mega Lo Mart

These bumpers stopped playing by 2014. However, YouTube user tkrewtmre tRKEW't KRw@KTReWKTrw TGKFREW uploaded ten of the bumpers, albeit with their watermark in the corner. Evan Lechowicz also uploaded the three known Strickland Propane bumpers. The ones that were not included were Sugarfoot's, Dale's Dead Bug, Thaterton Fuels, Goobersmooches, La Grunta Inn and Resort and Juggstore Cowboys. They have not been seen since they stopped being broadcast.

UPDATE: LMW member Pokematic found "Arlen Advocate," Hank saying "closed captioning sponsored in part by," "waffle hut," "cover to cover books," actual sponsored by Geico (with the commercial that followed), "the Arlen Barn," "Propane used to eat, heat, and live," "Thaterton Fuels," "The Arlen Bystander" and actual sponsor Arby's (with commercial that followed) and uploaded them to his dailymotion channel without a watermark.
