Alphabet Boy is based on one of Melanie's actual former boyfriends from college. According to an interview, this boyfriend would always try to teach Melanie the "right way" to write songs because he didn't like her way of writing them.
Alphabet Boy is Cry Baby's first crush. He first appears in Carousel, where Cry Baby falls in love with him, but she can't quite get under his shell and get him to fully love her with all of his heart. In Alphabet Boy, Cry Baby cries over him until she realizes that Alphabet Boy isn't worthy of her at all and dumps him.
Alphabet Boy is generally portrayed with short blonde hair and blue eyes. His clothing tends to vary, although in the booklet he wears a white short-sleeved shirt with blue shorts. There are slight differences in his Carousel appearance, as he wears a white tank-top and black suspenders.
Alphabet Boy is depicted as an arrogant, know-it-all who consistently belittles Cry Baby. He is highly possessive and patronizing, deriving from a superiority complex. His prince-like personality is expanded on more in Alphabet Boy.
- Although Alphabet Boy is referenced throughout the whole song of the same name, he does not appear on the camera in the music video. However, what are assumed to be his hands do appear.
