If you’re old enough to identify with Hank Hill and his buddies from the excellent animated Fox sitcom King of the Hill, you’re going to get a kick out of this beautiful pixel art-style rework of the intro clip by Brazil-based designer Mauri Helme, complete with a chiptune remix of the theme song.

Helme’s creation is reminiscent of retro 8-bit and 16-bit video games, and features an art style that requires working on imagery one pixel at a time. If you like what you see, follow him on YouTube and Twitter for more exceptional pixel art, like this piece depicting Eleven from Netflix’s Stranger Things, as well as a time-lapse showing how he painstakingly creates his masterpieces.
