Husky Bobby is the sixth episode of the second season of King of the Hill. It was written by Jonathan Collier, directed by Martin Archer, and first aired on November 9, 1997.

Plot

Bobby becomes a model for a company that makes overweight (or "husky") boys' clothing, horrifying Hank.

Why It Sucks

  1. The episode sides with Hank for stopping Bobby from doing plus size boys' modeling, saying that he is in the right for doing so because Bobby will get bullied for it.
  2. Even though Andy Maynard, the most famous husky model for the company Bobby models for, is unsurprisingly an unlikable spoiled brat, the viewer is supposed to feel that he deserved to get bullied at the end of the episode.
  3. The bullies are never punished or even condemned for their actions.
  4. It ends with Bobby conceding defeat to Hank by thanking him for pulling him out of the husky fashion show.
  5. It’s just another cliche "Bobby gets a new hobby and then never does it again" episode that had its premise done to death throughout the show's run.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. The episode is not that bad at first, and only suffers from a generic plot outline until its terrible ending.
  2. There are some legitimately funny moments dealing with Bobby's modeling stint.

Reception

  1. "Husky Bobby" is Number 8 on The Mysterious Mr. Enter's Top 10 Worst Episodes of King of the Hill.[1]
