Bailey (possibly James Bailey) is Muffy's butler and chauffeur. He is very good at art and built many sculptures for Muffy's art show. He does everything he's told, even doing a wheelie with the limo. He has worked for the Crosswire family for ten years and has a room in their mansion.
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. In his years at elementary school he was picked on, one of the bullies being a kid (now adult) named Chester. He also calls Muffy "Miss Muffy".
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.
- For his first appearance he was called James, 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.
- 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.
