Rocker Tom Petty has taped four episodes for the animated sitcom KING OF THE HILL.

The FREE FALLIN' singer will voice a character named LUCKY, who earned his nickname when he won a settlement after slipping on urine in a supermarket.

Petty says, "Lucky is sort of a philosophical idiot. He used to work at a corn-chip factory. There's an episode about how he won't eat a chip from a bag, because once you've had one right off the line, there's no going back."

The episodes featuring Petty's new character will air in America ins September (04).
