History in the series[]

In the episode "Return of the King", in an alternate history scenario (stated to all be part of a dream that Huey Freeman is having), King instead survives getting shot, but falls into a coma. He awakens 32 years later in the year 2000, however he doesn't react well to the new world of the 21st century.
