Waldo is an imaginary elephant who is Muffy's imaginary friend. He was around when Muffy was three, and was rediscovered by finding a picture of him. He is quite small, with an X for his left eye, and white fluff coming out his side. In the dream sequence in "The Friend Who Wasn't There", Muffy did not like Waldo or remember him at first, but later accepted him as a companion. Muffy thought he stank, and when she woke up, she gave him a bath.

He is seen once again in "Muffy Misses Out", this time appearing much more like a physical stuffed animal; it is unclear whether Muffy is imagining a stuffed animal or Waldo is an actual stuffed animal. She is seen blow drying his fur when she feels lonely and mad about her friends not following her advice. She seems to be talking to him to console her feelings.
