It has been said the Time Cruisers theme was a way for Lego to clear out left over parts from other retired themes. This is quite probable. Does it matter? I don't think so. How else are you going to get a bathtub and a pair of trumpets in one go? Sure the sets are weird, but it seems they were meant to be strange and I'm not ashamed to say I like the theme as whole.
