I think it's just easy from a writing standpoint to place Muffy in those kinds of roles, as is making her the villain, or a foil to make another character-- usually Francine 9 times out of 10-- look good, etc.

Plus she makes for a convenient scapegoat whenever the kids are being mean as a group. Going back to "Vomitrocious" (just so we're not completely straying from the original topic  ;)), when all the kids are making fun and laughing at George in the Sugar Bowl, Muffy is the only one out of all of them who is actually shown laughing.

I've taken a liking to Muffy for those reasons, out of spite for the lazy writing. :) Plus it's fun to root for the villain every once in a while.  ;)

As for her hair, it's safe to say that she has worn more hairstyles than any other character.
