Bailey promo
Bailey Carson Belvedere III[1] is Muffy's butler and chauffeur. He is very good at art and built many sculptures for Muffy's art show.[2] He does everything he's told, even doing a wheelie with the limo.[3] He has worked for the Crosswire family for ten years and has a room in their mansion.[4]


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.[5] In his years at elementary school he was picked on, one of the bullies being a kid (now adult) named Chester.[6] He also calls Muffy, "Miss Muffy."
