Fox Kids King of the Hill Promo -2

This is another King of the Hill and Silver Surfer promo that aired on Fox Kids. A user (Russam5354) on a forum site found this video on a Polish website, but lost the link. Another user (doctorsaki) from the same forum found the Polish site, downloaded the video, and uploaded it to his YouTube channel.

Somewhere in the span of 1997-2001, for a very brief time, the Fox Kids block in the United States aired certain episodes of regular Fox's popular animated sitcom King of the Hill. It is unknown whether this was only on certain local stations or done nation wide. All that is confirmed is that it aired at least in the upper Midwest and the South, and aired around the same time as the Silver Surfer animated series. Reportedly two of the episodes that were aired are "The Son That Got Away" and "Now Who's the Dummy?".

One of the more interesting things to come out of this was a crossover ad with Hill family and the Silver Surfer. In the ad, Hank and Peggy are laying in bed and are awakened by a crashing noise, causing Hank to ask what all the racket was about. Peggy then explains that was just their new neighbor, the Silver Surfer. There is later a scene where the Hill family and the Silver Surfer greet each other.

This is unusual for several reasons, the biggest one being that despite being relatively tame, the show was really not intended for children and contained plenty of humor that would likely go over kid's heads. It is unknown whether the episodes were edited in any way, but common sense would dictate that this was likely the case, as the show contains mild profanity (most notably, Hank had a tendency to threaten to kick people's asses), innuendo, violence, onscreen death, alcohol consumption, the character Dale who is usually seen smoking, as well as the tackling of mature subjects such as impotency, constipation, PTSD, infidelity, prostitution, anger management, conspiracy theories, and puberty.

Currently, very little evidence that this happened exists online outside a forum thread or two.

UPDATE JAN 30: After a random search on YouTube for any evidence of the Silver Surfer crossover, a video of it was found uploaded on the 29th. It's clear that this commercial was spliced together from existing footage, and was in fact part of a marathon called 'Fox Kids Heads for the Hills'. However, this should not be taken to mean an edited version of the show didn't air on Fox Kids.

UPDATE JULY 12: Two members of a forum site have located and uploaded a second promo for the 'Fox Kids Heads for the Hills' marathon.
