Bubba and Me is the first studio album released by the acid rock band Skinny Dippers on Acid Records.  The album garnered the band a substantial fanbase.

The song "Take a Trip with Me" sparked some controversy when some of the band's fans, a trio of teenagers, overdosed on PCP.

The songs "Bad Acid Trip", "Blow the Joint", and "Hooker with a Hookah" are re-recorded from the Cookoo On the Choochoo demo.

The tracks "Holy Smoke" and "Drip" are re-written songs from the Drip, Drip, Drip... demo.


The album features a strong acid rock vibe, with long instrumental parts and a psychedelic feel.  The bassist, Jay Stöpenmyer, also played additional guitar parts on "Trip Out of This World".  The song feels very reminiscent of Black Sabbath's "Planet Caravan".  A number of the tracks, such as "7-Pointed Leaf" and "QuickFix", are similar to some of Black Sabbath's other early works with a thicker, heavier tone.
