|These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way.

YMMV: Henry Kuttner
- Ear Worm: "LEFT/LEFT/LEFT a wife and/SEVenteen children in/STARVing condition with/NOTHing but gingerbread/LEFT/LEFT/LEFT-right-LEFT..."
- Magnificent Bastard: MacDuff in The Voice of the Lobster
- The Hogben family also counts.
- Nightmare Fuel: The Twonky
- Values Dissonance: "A Gnome There Was" opens with a bilious attack against the labor movement. (The overall mentality of Kuttner characters is total self-interest, even if the character outwardly seems to be engaged in altruistic pursuits.)
- Gallegher's alcoholism is considered comedic both by other characters and in the narration, even though it makes him miserable.
