Also for some reason Hank has never sat Peggy down and told her she really knows very little actual Spanish. I know that isn't his fault, but he does kind of let her make a fool of herself.
Don't forget they are not swingers like Peter & Lois Griffin were they cheat on eachother hundreds of times.
And I don't see that they don't face consequences. It's routinely implied their life sucks, and that they are in far worse shape than their neighbors, many of whom are far more successful and stable in their careers.
The only pairing I like is Stewie and Brian.
I'm talking about consequences as a direct result of his actions, like in that one episode where Peter tried to marry Chris for his inheritance, nothing happened to him in the end, he was just like "Oh wait, this is wrong, I'll stop" -cue credits- or the multiple times he beats up and bullies Meg for no reason and nothing happens, in fact, most of the time it's encouraged and shown as a funny thing, and it's not just him, the show itself is just crude with lazy jokes, playing up tired stereotypes and rape jokes and just playing it straight, like "lolol Jews are greedy, let's cut to this Jewish guy hoarding money" "let's show Quagmire sexually attacking Marge Simpson and shooting the family" again I don't mind horrible characters but I do hate shows that doesn't portray them as such, I don't mind racist, sexist characters, hate racist, sexist shows.

personally, i see boomhaur as what quagmire would be if he was a better developed character. sure, boomhaur sleep around but he didnt take any kind of moral high ground over the others and was actually a wise and surprisingly smart person.
The fact that he is also a rapist and that this is played as just being part of his quirky nature, however...
But anyway, regarding the OP, King of the Hill all the way. Not only does Mike Judge have a direct line to my funny bone but he also creates characters you care about in interesting situation that challenge them. Is the Old Looney Tunes formula, Make funny characters, throw them in whatever situation you feel like it so that they can funny it up.
Hey, here's another element to throw into the mix as this thread has mentioned more than just the original two shows: For all those who love King of the Hill, does it bother anyone that Mike Judge is also responsible for Beavis & Butthead?
