Dale Gribble is a character from the animated series “King of the Hill.”
Voiced by Johnny Hardwick, he’s an exterminator, bounty hunter, chain smoker and conspiracy theorist.
Originally, Daniel Stern was approached for the role but turned it down due to insufficient pay.
Stephen Root also auditioned but felt it wasn’t a fit. The role eventually went to Hardwick. Dale’s familial relationships are complicated.
He was estranged from his father, Bug Gribble, after seeing Bug kiss Dale’s wife, Nancy. This kiss, intended to conceal Bug’s homosexuality, led to a 20-year misunderstanding.
The truth emerged during an episode where Dale and friends attended his father’s gay rodeo.
Dale’s relationship with his wife is also layered. He’s oblivious to her long-standing affair with John Redcorn and believes their son, Joseph, is his biological child, despite Joseph’s resemblance to Redcorn.
Dale’s naiveté is recurrent, often interpreting situations completely differently from reality, as shown in his various visions and interpretations.
