* ShoutOut: Strangely [[DownplayedTrope downplayed]], especially knowing how ReferenceOverdosed Humongous games normally are. The only references to other Humongous games are Brain Banks in the shape of [[VideoGame/PuttPutt Pep]] and VideoGame/FreddiFish.

'''''Big Thinkers!''''' is a series of {{Edutainment Game}}s by HumongousEntertainment that's rather...interesting. It stars the rather twisted Ben and Becky Brightly, whose goal seems to be to entertain you while educating you. It's a little bit like the ''VideoGame/JumpStart'' series, except Ben and Becky are quite odd. They transform into anything you can imagine, and own several things you'd never expect a teenager to even dream of having. You play several [[MinigameGame minigames]] to earn [=SmartStars=], where you can collect enough to eventually take part in the Super Star of Smarts challenge.

There are only two games in the series, ''Big Thinkers! Kindergarten'' and ''Big Thinkers! First Grade''. A second grade version was planned, but it was scrapped after it turned out developing three games at once was too ambitious. Needless to say, much like other minor Humongous franchises, it simply didn't catch on very well. Even poor BuzzyTheKnowledgeBug got more attention than Ben and Becky, and still don't get much love nowadays despite Humongous' growing fandom.

There are only two games in the series, ''Big Thinkers! Kindergarten'' and ''Big Thinkers! First Grade''. A second grade version was announced but either [[{{Vaporware}} never saw the light of day]] or [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes exists in limited quantities]]. Needless to say, much like other minor Humongous franchises, it simply didn't catch on very well, and could be the possible reason ''Second Grade'' doesn't exist. Even poor BuzzyTheKnowledgeBug got more attention than Ben and Becky, and still don't get much love nowadays despite Humongous' growing fandom.
