Muddle was a Middling and a servant to the King.

Muddle and the King halted the Scarecrow's fall down his beanpole and demanded that he pay a toll. After he paid it with an emerald, they briefly debated whether they should pull him into their kingdom and give him a coat of mud. Muddle considered the Scarecrow very poorly made, and asked him if he could work; the King scoffed at the Scarecrow's claim that he worked with his head. Muddle, deeming the stuffed man useless, allowed him to continue his fall. (The Royal Book of Oz)
