Bubble and Squeak is a platform-puzzle game developed by Fox Williams and published by Audiogenic Software. Initially released for the Commodore Amiga, it was ported to the Sega Mega Drive in 1994 by Sunsoft. It also saw a release on the short-lived Amiga CD32 console.

In the game you control a bald child named "Bubble" who has command over an alien named Squeak who will follow Bubble around and will allow him to access new areas. A shoots a spark straight ahead to hit enemies. B jumps. You must find Squeak in each level; use C to get him to follow you when you do.

During development the game appears to have been called Barnie and Clyde.
