Oliver "Daddy" Warbucks is the deuteragonist of the musical "Annie" and all films (including the 1995 sequel "Annie: A Royal Adventure!"). He is a bald billionaire and is in love with his secretary, Grace Farrell. He doesn't like Annie at first, considering he only intended to adopt a male orphan, but he didn't specify the gender. Nor did he seem to like Sandy for some reason. However, he begins to warm up to them. In fact, in the end of the musical and the films, he adopts them as his own daughter and pet, respectively. Oliver is played by the late Reid Shelton in the original musical, Albert Finney in the 1982 film, George Hearn in its sequel, and Victor Garber in the 1999 film.

The musical and two films follow the same way. First, he meets Annie, only to be disappointed at first. He and Grace take Annie out on outings (a movie in the 1982 film, and ice cream and ending with a Broadway show in that from 1999). He then decides to adopt Annie, while still trying to find Annie's parents. Later, he decides to allow the Mudges (whom he is led to think are her parents) to adopt her (unaware that they are actually Rooster Hannigan and Lily St. Regis ( In the 1999 film, it is Miss Hannigan who pretends to be Mrs. Mudge] pretending to be her parents just for the $50,000). However, when their cover is blown, and the duo are arrested (and so is Miss Hannigan in the musical, while she reforms in the 1982 film, and she is sent to an asylum in the 1999 film), and (according to the 1999 film) Oliver learns from the president that David and Margaret Bennett were Annie's real parents, whose death some time ago was why they never found her all these years. So, he adopts Annie and becomes engaged to Grace.

In the sequel, "Annie: A Royal Adventure!", Oliver Warbucks is on a trip to London with Annie, her friend Hannah (with her parents' permission), and her other friend Molly (despite Miss Hannigan saying no, so they are stowing her away), because he is supposed to be knighted by the King. In the 2014 Film he is replaced by a character named Will Stacks played by Jamie Foxx.

Though in the Broadway musicals and the three movie adaptations Oliver gets married to Grace, he is already married to a snobby woman that adopts Annie just for popularity. When Oliver Warbucks instantly falls in love with the orphan , she becomes Annie's enemy and adopts another named Selby Adelbert Piffeberry. She neglects Annie but her husband often puts her into place.
