Oscar and Morris Delancey are tough newsboys and are supporting antagonists in the Disney musical Newsies.
Oscar was portrayed by Shon Greenblatt and Morris by David Sheinkopf.
At the start of the film, they push a smaller newsie to the back of the line. But Jack Kelly sticks up for him and steals one of their bowler derbies. They chase him across Greely Square, but he manages escape, after which racetrack comments "Brilliant Performance cowboy, better than yesterday's!" implying that disputes are common between Kelly and the Delanceys.
Despite most of the newsies going on strike, the Delanceys remained loyal to Weisel as his main lackeys to impede their efforts. They handed Crutchy to the police during a raid and he is thrown into Snyder's custody at the Refuge. Due to their assault, Crutchy was too hurt to be broken out by Jack and David.
After Jack shows up on the streets as a scab, the Delanceys appear, looking for trouble, and tell Jack that they're going to attack David, and that because Jack is under Pulitzer's watch, he can't interfere. The brothers instead go after Sarah and Les, and David tries to save them but is almost fatally beaten. Jack witnesses the events and steps in to ward off the Delanceys, even though he knows he will get thrown in the Refuge for doing so.
In the Broadway production, the Delancey brothers are more greedy newspapers salers
