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. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
The Scrappy: Hands up who likes Patrick? Or Rod or Lucy, or Gordon or Missy? Or Angela? Or Zach? Yeah, we thought as much.
Rescued from the Scrappy Heap: Rod, just a little. While he's still far from anyone's favorite sock, lately he's become slightly less detestable than the others due to the fact that he's merely immature and stupid rather than downright malicious.
Toy Ship: Rod and Lucy. Well, they're in their early teens, but they certainly act the part of small children.
