Bubble Puppy was a psychedelic rock band formed in 1964 in Austin, Texas and consisted of Rod Prince and Todd Potter on lead guitars, Roy Cox on bass and David "Fuzzy" Fore on drums. Bubble Puppy's "Hot Smoke & Sasafrass" made it to #14 on the Billboard 100 in the United States.

The name "Bubble Puppy" was taken from "Centrifugal Bumble-Puppy", a fictitious children's game in Aldous Huxley's Brave New World. "Hot Smoke & Sasafrass" was a line lifted from an episode of The Beverly Hillbillies.

In the early 1970's the band moved to Los Angeles, and changed their name to Demian signing up with Nick St. Nicholas of Steppenwolf as a manager.
Demian released one self-titled album in 1971. In 1972, Bubble Puppy split up. The members of Bubble Puppy continued to be active in the music industry after the band's demise. Potter and Prince played with Sirius through the late 1970's, and Fore drummed with the Texas punk rock band D-Day, co-writing their cult hit "Too Young to Date".
