Bailey (possibly James[3] Bailey) is Muffy's butler and chauffeur. He is very good at art and built many sculptures for Muffy's art show.[4] He does everything he's told, even doing a wheelie with the limo.[5] He has worked for the Crosswire family for ten years and has a room in their mansion.[6]


Bailey often gives advice to Muffy when she needs it. He admitted that he actually enjoys doing his job, despite it involving a lot of hard work for him. He also admits that it is never dull for him.[7] In his years at elementary school he was picked on, one of the bullies being a kid (now adult) named Chester.[8] He also calls Muffy "Miss Muffy".

Physical appearance

Bailey is an anthropomorphic beige dog. He wears brown shoes, gray trousers, a white shirt with a red tie under a dark gray suit jacket.

Alternate colors


  • For his first appearance he was called James,[9] but his name changed to Bailey in the episode "Poor Muffy."
    • However, in "The Butler Did...What?", Mr. Ratburn makes a point that 'Bailey' could be his last name.
    • This refers to the show's director, Greg Bailey.
  • His room has a picture from high school, where it is revealed that he went to high school with Mr. Ratburn. They were in the high school band together in 1979-1980.[10]
  • He is miscolored in certain episodes, notably "Muffy's New Best Friend" and "The Play's the Thing".
  • He plays badminton. In "The Tardy Tumbler" Muffy says that she has a badminton match with him. In "The Case of the Girl with the Long Face" Muffy noted how he sprained his elbow playing.
