''Big Thinkers!'' is a series of {{Edutainment Game}}s by Creator/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 VideOGame/BuzzyTheKnowledgeBug got more attention than Ben and Becky, and still don't get much love nowadays despite Humongous' growing fandom.

!!Big Thinkers provides examples of:
* AlliterativeName: Ben and Becky Brightly.
* BalloonBelly: One of the possible results of the Brightly's [[VoluntaryShapeshifting shapeshifting]]. Even taken to the point where Ben inflates his body into a globe!
* BiggerOnTheInside: Many examples, but most notably their sandbox.
* ExcitedKidsShowHost: Ben and Becky.
* ExcitedShowTitle
* FollowTheLeader: The series takes a much more ''VideoGame/JumpStart'' styled approach than most other Humongous games.
* KiddieKid: Ben and Becky may very well be considered this, since they own a very childish looking house for being teenagers. They even own a sandbox.
* MacGuffin: The [=SmartStars=].
* RecurringRiff: The TitleThemeTune shows up just about everywhere in the games.
* RubberHoseLimbs: The Brights can bend their limbs in ways no human can...
* RubberMan: ...And stretch them out to extreme distances.
* 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. As well as potentially getting VideoGame/PuttPutt to appear in one of the minigames from 1st Grade.
* TitleDrop: Oh so many.
* TitleThemeTune
* TradeSnark: In the help files, [=SmartStars=] are always called [=SmartStars=].
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: Both of the Brightlys exhibit this in extreme ways. Have fun counting them all!
* WheelOFeet: The Brightlys sometimes do this.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Both Ben and Becky sport it.
