Dale Gribble is your typical conspiracy nut. Chain smoker, bounty hunter, bug exterminator, self-defense pioneer, and gun fanatic – he is one of the few people that regularly pushes the usually calm Hank Hills’ buttons. He is skinny for a middle-aged man and always wears aviator shades, an orange hunting cap, brown button up shirt, jeans, and brown shoes, and of course, a cigarette in his hand. As suspicious as he is of almost everything and as much as he is a conspiracy enthusiast, Dale is unaware for most of the series of his wife’s affair with the Native American Redcorn, and that he is infact the biological father of his son, Joseph.
Luanne is the daughter of Peggy’s good-for-nothing husband and alcoholic wife that lives with the Hill family. At first, Hank encourages her to move out at every opportunity but soon warms up to her and accepts her as part of the family. She is sweet, pretty, and good-natured but also slightly over emotional and naive. Over the course of the series, she’s had many different jobs from cosmetologist to babysitter to model to puppeteer. She also has an unpexpected penchant for mechanical system, fixing Hank’s truck in the first episode. Although her outfits change as regulalry as her work, she has permed blond hair and is usually dressed for summer with a crop top and shorts.
