Now do the same title format six more times!]]

->''"It will be called ''Literature/HarryPotter and''... something. Catchy, don't you think? And I think I'll follow the same model for [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows seven]]."''
-->-- '''Creator/JKRowling''' (on the title of the [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheHalfBloodPrince sixth book]] before it was announced)

This is a standard way to name individual works in a loosely-linked series; it is currently most common in childrens' books. Frequently the noun phrase in question will be of TheXOfY form.

A common variant is to use the possessive instead of "and the", giving Character Name's Noun Phrase or Character Name and his Noun Phrase.

If ever bored, amuse yourself by taking the "And The Noun Phrase" part and adding it to a different "Character Name". For instance: ''Indiana Jones and the Chocolate Factory''. Another variation is to add the title of a movie that ''doesn't'' follow this pattern to a Character Name from a series that ''does'': ''Indiana Jones and the Minority Report''. (Inspired by the retitled video releases of ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk''.)

While not to be confused with TheFantasticTropeOfWonderousTitles, there can be overlap.

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* The translated novels of ''LightNovel/BookGirl'' all use this, with "Book Girl" for the name and "Suicidal Mime," "Famished Spirit," "Captive Fool," etc. for the Noun Phrase.
* Most of the episodes of the ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'' anime have Japanese titles that begin with "Sakura and..."
* Many of the ''Anime/{{Doraemon}}'' movies have titles beginning with "Nobita and..." The possessive variation is also common (with Nobita), Nobita being the boy who the titular Doraemon has been sent from the future to aid.
* When the third ''Manga/HimitsuNoAkkoChan'' anime was dubbed in Italian, it was given the title "Stilly e lo Specchio Magico" ("Stilly[[note]]Stilly is Akko-chan's Italian name.[[/note]] and the Magic Mirror").[[note]]The first anime had been dubbed as simply "Lo Specchio Magico", while the second was dubbed as "Un Mondo di Magia" ("A World of Magic").[[/note]]
* ''Anime/JackAndTheWitch'', an anime movie made by Toei in the 1960s.
* ''[[Manga/TheLuciferAndBiscuitHammer Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer]]'', the English title of the manga series ''Hoshi no Samidare''.
* ''Anime/MaryAndTheWitchsFlower'', a 2017 anime movie by Creator/StudioPonoc.
* ''LightNovel/OokamiSan'': Every one of the LightNovels and episodes of the anime series are titled ''Ookami-san and [something]''.
* This is the case for several of the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' movies and a two-part special (''VideoGame/PokemonRanger and the Kidnapped Riolu!''). The character named in the title is usually a [[SecondaryCharacterTitle secondary character]] exclusive to the film (the main characters are always Ash and his friends), often a rare or legendary Pokemon that would be out of place in a regular episode. They are:
** ''Anime/PokemonLucarioAndTheMysteryOfMew''
** ''Anime/PokemonRangerAndTheTempleOfTheSea''
** ''Anime/PokemonGiratinaAndTheSkyWarrior''
** ''Anime/PokemonArceusAndTheJewelOfLife''
** ''Anime/PokemonGenesectAndTheLegendAwakened''
** ''Anime/PokemonDiancieAndTheCocoonOfDestruction''
** ''Anime/PokemonHoopaAndTheClashOfAges''
** ''Anime/PokemonVolcanionAndTheMechanicalMarvel''
* ''LightNovel/SpiceAndWolf'' (also known in Japan as ''Wolf and Spice'') has each episode titled "Wolf and" something relating to the episode.
* The German dubbed version of the ''Literature/VickyTheViking'' anime is called ''Wickie und die Starken Männer'' (lit. "Vicky and the Strong Men").
* ''Manga/YamadaKunAndTheSevenWitches'', [[spoiler:though it has become an ArtifactTitle since it was revealed that there are in fact 14 witches at a time, and they are regularly replaced, making the number of witches the titular Yamada has met no less than 21]].
* ''Manga/{{Yotsuba}}'', though it's the titles of the individual chapters instead of the volumes.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* A lot of the ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}}'' books have this format: ''Asterix and the Golden Sickle'', ''Asterix and the Chieftain's Shield'', etc. (It was considerably rarer in the original French, though).
* The ''ComicBook/AtomicRobo'' series. The first collection is ''Atomic Robo and the Fightin' Scientists of Tesladyne''.
* ''ComicBook/BatmanAndTheOutsiders''
* ''ComicBook/BuckyOHareAndTheToadWars''[[note]]The AnimatedAdaptation was broadcast in Canada [[MarketBasedTitle as]] "Bucky O'Hare and the Toad 'Menace'" due to the word "war" being taboo for animated / family shows at the time.[[/note]]
* ''ComicBook/CaptainCarrotAndHisAmazingZooCrew''
* Italian [[ComicBook/DisneyMouseAndDuckComics Disney comic stories]] (and Italian translations of Disney comics from other languages) use such titles all the time.
* ''Creator/MrT and the T-Force''
* ''ComicBook/RedHoodAndTheOutlaws''
* Bryan Lee O'Malley's ''ComicBook/ScottPilgrim'' series uses the character's name in all six volume titles - the strictest example of this trope is the third volume, ''Scott Pilgrim & the Infinite Sadness''. Which, in turn is a reference to Music/TheSmashingPumpkins album titled in the same format (''Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness'').
* ''[[Comicbook/HowlingCommandos Sergeant Fury and the Howling Commandos]]''
* ''Franchise/{{Tintin}}'' avoided this trope until the series' final two albums, ''Tintin and the Picaros'' and the unfinished ''Tintin and Alpha-Art''.
* ''Uncle Sam and the Comicbook/FreedomFighters''
* The first volume of ''ComicBook/TheUnwritten'' is titled "Tommy Taylor and the Bogus Identity". The in-universe Tommy Taylor novels also follow this naming pattern, more likely than not to specifically evoke the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' series.
* ''ComicBook/WolverineAndTheXMen''
* ''ComicBook/JosieAndThePussycats'' started out as a SliceOfLife comic named "Josie!" before it became about a band.
* The comic for ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' is officially called "Jem And The Holograms". Unlike in the cartoon, Rio has complained about how he thinks Jem is putting herself above of the others.
* ''ComicBook/SteelgripStarkeyAndTheAllPurposePowerTool''
* The ''ComicBook/{{Hilda}}'' series of graphic novels initially subverted this by having the first book titled ''Hildafolk'', but starting from the second book (''Hilda and the Midnight Troll'') onwards, it's played straight. (It got to a point that the first book was eventually reprinted as ''Hilda and the Troll'' to go with the flow.)

[[folder:Fairy Tales]]
* ''Literature/CatherineAndHerFate'': Doubles as NameAndName, since the fate is an AnthropomorphicPersonification.
* ''Literature/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs'': Snow White is a hunted princess who finds refuge with the dwarfs.
* ''Literature/{{Goldilocks}} and the Three Bears'': A young girl named Goldilocks wanders into the house of a family of three bears, eating their food and sleeping on their furniture while the bears are out.
* King Midas and the Golden Touch: The protagonist, King Midas, wishes that everything he touches would turn to gold, hence giving he himself a magic touch.
* Aladdin and the Magic Lamp: Protagonist Aladdin finds a magical lamp which contains a genie that will grant him three wishes.
* Literature/AliBabaAndTheFortyThieves
* Literature/{{Cinderella}} and the Glass Slipper: Cinderella, a young woman being raised by her cruel stepmother, goes to a royal ball wearing magical clothes and falls in love with the prince. At the end of the night they vanish, with the exception of her glass slippers - one of which was inadvertently left at the palace, and which is the prince's only clue to her identity.
* Literature/JackAndTheBeanstalk: Gullible Jack trades his cow for magic beans, which grow into a giant beanstalk. Jack climbs the beanstalk into the clouds and an adventure ensues.
* Literature/ThePrincessAndThePea

[[folder:Fan Fiction]]
* ''FanFic/ScottPilgrimVsSnowFlowerAndTheSecretHallPass''. Played straight, since the title is a parody of Literature/SnowFlowerAndTheSecretFan.
* ''Fanfic/HarryPotterAndTheMethodsOfRationality'', of course.
* ''Fanfic/CourtneyAndTheViolinOfDespair'', with the noun phrase naming the story's ArtifactOfDeath. In addition, this ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'' story ends with a {{sequel hook}} for a story that (if it ever gets written) would obviously be called, "Courtney and the Violin of Doom".
* The ''Fanfic/EmpathTheLuckiestSmurf'' story "Empath And The Red-Nosed Reindeer".
* Every chapter of ''FanFic/MyLittleWesker'' follows the naming scheme "Albert Wesker and (the) [phrase]".
* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/135041/1/Harry-Potter-and-the-Florinese-Dream Harry Potter and the Florinese Dream]],'' a very old {{crossover}} putting the Harry Potter characters into ''Film/ThePrincessBride''.
* ''[[Fanfic/{{Cinderjuice}} Bug Princess and the Seven Months]]''
* In-universe in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11833745/3/Saving-the-Saviour Saving the Saviour]]''. Tonks owns a romance novel called ''Isabile and the Werewolf of the Rannock Moor''.
* Parodied with ''FanFic/HarryPotterAndTheSomethingSomething''.

Barbie is the main character though it is rarely the same version of Barbie from film to film; usually the minor details vary to be more suited to the plot and storyline.
* ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast''
* A number of the ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' made-for-video animated movies follow this (''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheWitchsGhost'', ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheLochNessMonster'', ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheSamuraiSword,'' etc.)

* Three of the ''[[Franchise/DisneyFairies Tinker Bell]]'' films are named this way: ''Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure'', ''Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue'', and ''Tinker Bell and the Legend of the [=NeverBeast=]''.
* The full title of ''WesternAnimation/BarbieMariposa'' is "Barbie Mariposa and her Butterfly Fairy Friends".

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]

* ''Sarah Landon and The Paranormal Hour''.
* ''Film/SkyCaptainAndTheWorldOfTomorrow''
* Canadian children's film ''Tommy Tricker and the Stamp Traveller''.
* ''Film/GleahanAndTheKnavesOfIndustry''.

* The four books of the [[Literature/AlcatrazSeries Hushland biographies of Alcatraz Smedry]]: ''Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians'', ''Alcatraz Versus the Scrivener's Bones'', ''Alcatraz Versus the Knights of Crystallia'', and ''Alcatraz Versus the Shattered Lens''.
* ''Literature/AlexanderAndTheTerribleHorribleNoGoodVeryBadDay''
* Children's novels ''Literature/AlexAndTheIronicGentleman'' and ''Timothy and the Dragon's Gate'' by Adrienne Kress.
* After the first, the ''Literature/ArtemisFowl'' books follow this form. They were originally subtitles, but have switched to the "and the" format since the new covers came out.
* ''Literature/TheBabySittersClub'' series loved this trope.
* Harry Potter is spoofed in the ''Literature/BarryTrotter'' parody trilogy: ''Barry Trotter and the Shameless/Unauthorized Parody'', ''Barry Trotter and the Unnecessary Sequel'', and ''Barry Trotter and the Dead Horse''.
* Most (but not all) of ''Literature/TheBerenstainBears''' original series is in the format "The Berenstain Bears and the X Y".
* The vast majority of ''Literature/{{Biggles}}'' books fall into this category.
* Roughly half of the books in C. W. Anderson's "Billy and Blaze" series:
** ''Blaze and the Forest Fire: Billy and Blaze Spread the Alarm''
** ''Blaze and the Mountain Lion''
** ''Blaze and the Indian Cave''
** ''Blaze and the Lost Quarry''
** ''Blaze and the Gray Spotted Pony''
* Every book in the ''Literature/CaptainUnderpants'' series with the exception of the first book is like this. Every other book title besides Book 3 is also palindromic.
* ''Literature/ChildrenOfTheRedKing'': In the U.S., all but the first book follow this pattern. In the U.K., only the later ones do.
* Subtly subverted (or inverted?) in Creator/CSLewis' ''Literature/TheHorseAndHisBoy'', of ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia''. It seems he was spoofing the "[[PonyTale pony-book]] public". (''Literature/TheLionTheWitchAndTheWardrobe'' is a shout-out to Creator/ENesbit novels with similar titles.)
* A couple of titles in the ''Literature/{{Clementine}}'' series follow this naming format. Others have the title character's name somewhere in the title.
* Creator/RoaldDahl titled some of his books like this (''Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'', ''Literature/JamesAndTheGiantPeach'').

** ''Danny Dunn and the Smallifying Machine''
** ''Danny Dunn and the Swamp Monster''
** ''Danny Dunn and the Universal Glue''
* ''Literature/DaveBarrySleptHere'' has a list of fifties rock bands which includes "Buster and the Harpoons" and "Bill [[GagWords Hawley and the Smoots]]".
* ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'': ''Discworld/TheAmazingMauriceAndHisEducatedRodents''
* Almost all [[Literature/DoctorWhoNovelisations Target novelisations]] of ''Series/DoctorWho'' published between 1973 and 1982 insisted on the 'Doctor Who and the' format. This occasionally required retitling the story to make it fit, as when [[Recap/DoctorWhoS7E1SpearheadFromSpace "Spearhead from Space"]] became ''Doctor Who and the Auton Invasion'', or [[Recap/DoctorWhoS4E6TheMoonbase "The Moonbase"]] became ''Doctor Who and the Cybermen''. The practice probably stems from the fact that the scripts were usually titled "Doctor Who and The Whatever" with the first part dropped from the onscreen titles. [[IAmNotShazam His name isn't "Doctor Who", anyway]], so none of these titles make sense, but that didn't stop them.
* Erich Kästner's ''Literature/EmilAndTheDetectives'' was followed by a sequel, ''Emil and the Three Twins''. His later book ''The Little Man'' was followed by ''The Little Man and the Little Miss''.
* Some of the ''Literature/EncyclopediaBrown'' books follow this format strictly (e.g., ''Encyclopedia Brown and the Case of the Dead Eagles''), while others deviate slightly (''Encyclopedia Brown Strikes Again''). The ones that name a specific element always use one of the cases in the book as the noun phrase.
* Every book and short story in ''Literature/FeliksNetAndNika'' series has title starting with ''Feliks, Net & Nika and...''
* ''Literature/HaroldAndThePurpleCrayon''
* ''Literature/HarryPotter'' uses this for all 7 books, following the pattern of the titular Harry and a location, item, or character around which the central conflict of that particular book forms.
* [[Franchise/IndianaJones ''Indiana Jones and the Philosopher's Stone'']] which predates the similarly named Harry Potter novel by two years.
* ''Jacob Two-Two and the Hooded Fang'' and its sequel ''Jacob Two-Two and the Dinosaur'', by Mordecai Richler.
* P.G. Wodehouse's Jeeves short stories frequently have such titles ("Jeeves and the Impending Doom", "Jeeves and the Old School Chum", etc.).
* ''Literature/JimSpringmanAndTheRealmOfGlory''
* All of the original kindergarten series ''Literature/JunieBJones'' book are like this. Averted with the "First Grader" books.
* Creator/StephenKing's "Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption".
* ''Literature/KittyNorville'': The first, fourth, and fifth books in Carrie Vaughn's series (''Kitty and the Midnight Hour'', ''Kitty and the Silver Bullet'', and ''Kitty and the Dead Man's Hand'', respectively.) Books two and three are variants of this (''Kitty Goes to Washington'' and ''Kitty Takes a Holiday'').
* Argentinian author Sebastián Lalaurette's first two books were titled ''Rodrigo y el libro sin final'' (''Rodrigo and the unfinished book'') and ''Naím y el mago fugitivo'' (''Naím and the runaway wizard''). The third one, ''Bellacrín y la Sombra'' (''Bellacrín and the Shadow''), is a slight variation in that is uses just a noun instead of a noun phrase.
* This is the case with many of the books in Anna Dewdney's ''Literature/LlamaLlama'' picture book series, such as ''Llama Llama and the Bully Goat'', ''Llama Llama and Friends'' and the spin-off title ''Nelly Gnu and Daddy Too''. Others follow the basic format but leave out the "and," such as ''Llama Llama Mad at Mama'' and ''Llama Llama Holiday Drama''.
* Every book in the ''Literature/LuckyStarr'' series [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness except the first]] is called ''Lucky Starr and [[TheXOfY the [Noun] of [Solar System locale]]]''.
* ''Literature/MarkDelewenAndTheSpacePirates''.
* Jerome Beatty Jr's ''Matthew Looney and the Space Pirates'', ''Maria Looney and the Remarkable Robot'' and ''Maria Looney and the Cosmic Circus''.
* ''Literature/MrsFrisbyAndTheRatsOfNIMH''. The first sequel, ''R-T, Margaret, and the Rats of NIMH'', slightly altered the title formula, though ''Racso and the Rats of NIMH'' reverted to it.
* Every single one of G.M. Berrow's ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' books.
* ''Literature/NancyDrew'' books often have titles like this where the case is the noun phrase. The video games often follow the pattern as well. The titles use elements of Nancy, a detective's, cases that are central to each case.
* ''Literature/OldKingdom'': The novella "Nicholas Sayre and the Creature in the Case", starring Sam's best friend and Lirael's LoveInterest Nick six months after ''Abhorsen''.
* ''Literature/PenrynAndTheEndOfDays''
* ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians: Subtitle Here'' x5 . Creator/RickRiordan announced in October 2014 that he was returning to this name format with his fourth series, ''Literature/MagnusChaseAndTheGodsOfAsgard''.
* OlderThanPrint: ''Literature/SirGawainAndTheGreenKnight'', a Myth/KingArthur tale written in the 14th century.
* ''Literature/TheSnarkoutBoys and the Avocado of Death'' and ''The Snarkout Boys and the Baconburg Horror'' by Creator/DanielPinkwater.
* Lisa See's ''Literature/SnowFlowerAndTheSecretFan''.
* ''Literature/SsaliaAndTheDragonsOfAvienot''.
* ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'':
** ''Literature/TalesFromAGalaxyFarFarAwayVolumeOneAliens'' has a short story called "The Crimson Corsair and the Lost Treasure of Count Dooku".
* ''Franchise/StarWarsLegends'':
** ''Literature/LukeSkywalkerAndTheShadowsOfMindor''. The book mentions a number of in-universe pulp adventures that also use this trope in their title. It's {{lampshade|Hanging}}d, as at the end [[spoiler:[[LiteraryAgentHypothesis it's suggested that the novel itself was one of those adventures.]] It's apparently the published version, following the revisions Luke demanded, as none of his grievances were actually in the novel.]]
** ''Literature/TheLandoCalrissianAdventures'' trilogy follows the more specific formula "Lando Calrissian and the Compound Noun of Place": ''Mindharp of Sharu'', ''Flamewind of Oseon'', and ''Starcave of Thonboka''.
** ''Literature/HanSoloAndTheLostLegacy''.
** The German translation of ''{{Literature/Shatterpoint}}'' [[CompletelyDifferentTitle was titled]] "Mace Windu und die Armee der Klone" ("Mace Windu and the army of clones"). [[NonindicativeName The clones are actually just side characters who don't appear until relatively late in the story]].
* There's a 1980s ''WesternAnimation/StrawberryShortcake'' storybook called "Strawberry Shortcake and the Winter that Would not End".
* Many of Creator/EdgarRiceBurroughs' Literature/{{Tarzan}} novels, starting with the fifth, ''Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar''.
* Spoofed in ''Literature/TollTheHounds''. Tovald Nom breaks into a nobleman's house and roots through his library because he thinks it's just for show. He's right and finds literary pearls such as ''Tales of Pamby Doughty and the World Inside the Trunk (with illustrations by some dead man)''.
* The first two sets of ''Literature/TomSwift'' books are all named according to the pattern ''Tom Swift and His [noun phrase]'', and are probably the UrExample.
* Stretching the definition of "character" a bit, but the non-fiction book ''T. Rex and the Crater of Doom'', about the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event, is clearly intended to evoke the trope.
* ''Literature/TheUnderlandChronicles'' starts off with ''Gregor the Overlander'', then continues to ''Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane'', then ''Curse of the Warmbloods'', and so on.
* Literature/WarriorCats has a lot of these, of the "Character's Noun" variant. The Super Editions (extra-long standalone books) and the [[Literature/WarriorCatsNovellas novellas]] all have this kind of title. Listing them all would be problematic, due to the [[SpoilerTitle spoilers]], but examples include ''Bluestar's Prophecy'', ''Moth Flight's Vision'', ''Cloudstar's Journey'', and ''Yellowfang's Secret''.
* Brina Williamson's ''[[SesquipedalianSmith Merona Grant]] and the Lost Tomb of Golgotha''.
* Books by Miss Felicity Beed;e referred to in ''Discworld/{{Snuff}}'' include ''Daphne and the Nose Pickers'', ''Melvin and the Enormous Boil'', ''Geoffrey and the Land of Poo'' and ''Geoffrey and the Enormous Pillowcase'', (The last two presumably being sequels to ''Discworld/TheWorldOfPoo'').
* ''Literature/TheDemigodDiaries'': It's [[ShortStory Short Stories]] ''Percy Jackson And The Staff Of Hermes'' and ''Leo Valdez And The Quest For Buford''.
* ''Literature/TheDemigodFiles'': It's [[ShortStory Short Stories]] ''Percy Jackson And The Stolen Chariot'', ''Percy Jackson And The Bronze Dragon'' and ''Percy Jackson And The Sword Of Hades''.
* From the Penric sub-series of Creator/LoisMcMasterBujold's [[Literature/{{Chalion}} Five Gods]] 'verse:
** ''Penric's Demon''
** ''Penric and the Shaman''
** ''Penric's Fox''
** ''Penric's Mission''

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/TwoBrokeGirls'' combines this with EpisodeFinishesTheTitle (where the episode name constitutes the "and the Noun Phrase" part).
* ''Series/CaptainPowerAndTheSoldiersOfTheFuture''
* ''Series/DoctorWho'': During the classic series, scripts were often titled internally with a "Dr. Who and the..." format to prevent them getting mixed up with the scripts for other shows - so you'd have scripts called things like "Dr. Who and the Slave Traders" (part of [[Recap/DoctorWhoS2E4TheRomans "The Romans"]]) or "Dr. Who and the Temple of Evil" (part of [[Recap/DoctorWhoS1E6TheAztecs "The Aztecs"]]), and, as [[IAmNotShazam the character's name is not "Dr. Who"]], broadcast as "The Slave Traders" and "The Temple of Evil". This practice did leak into the show twice by accident -- the first time was when the series abandoned the practice of titling each episode in favour of titling each serial, causing some internal confusion, so the [[OnTheNext Next Episode title]] at the end of [[Recap/DoctorWhoS3E8TheGunfighters "The Gunfighters"]] was shown as "Dr. Who and [[Recap/DoctorWhoS3E9TheSavages the Savages]]", though it was fixed in the serial itself. The second time was just a slip-up, and led to a Jon Pertwee story being called [[Recap/DoctorWhoS7E2DoctorWhoAndTheSilurians "Doctor Who and the Silurians"]] for the whole way through. The "Dr. Who and the..." titles have been used occasionally in the ExpandedUniverse as an IntentionallyAwkwardTitle designed to evoke feelings of FanDumb (such as the audio drama "Dr. Who and the Pirates") as well as the occasional CanonDiscontinuity (as in ''Film/DrWhoAndTheDaleks'', which starred a human time traveller named Dr. Who).
* ''The Ghost and Mrs. Muir'' put the trope into reverse.
* All episodes of ''Series/{{Joey}}'' were titled "Joey and the [noun phrase]".
* ''Series/JohnnyAndTheSprites''
* [[IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming All episodes]] of ''Series/{{Monk}}'' have titles like "Mr. Monk and the [noun phrase]". This was {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d in an episode when an [[StalkerWithACrush obsessed fan]] mentions she wrote a FanFic with a title along these lines.
* ''Series/NCISNewOrleans'', season 2 has "Billy and the Kid".
* ''Series/RogerAndTheRottentrolls''.
* Just about every episode of the British courtroom mystery series ''Series/RumpoleOfTheBailey'' had its title in the form of "Rumpole and the...".
* The Creator/{{CBBC}} comedy adventure series ''Uncle Jack and Operation Green'' and its sequels ''Uncle Jack and the Loch Ness Monster'', ''Uncle Jack and Cleopatra's Mummy'' and ''Uncle Jack and the Dark Side of the Moon''.

* Long John and the Silver Beetles (after Buddy Holly and the Crickets), before shortening their name to Music/TheBeatles.
* Prior to being just The Beatles, they were back-up under the billing Tony Sheridan And The Beatles.
* Bill Haley and his Comets.
* Music/DavidBowie's ''Music/TheRiseAndFallOfZiggyStardustAndTheSpidersFromMars'', possibly his best-remembered album.
* [[Music/MarcBolan T.Rex]], featuring Bowie's pal Marc Bolan, put out an obscure LP called ''Zinc Alloy and the Hidden Riders of Tomorrow,'. The title plays on Bolan's late 60's plan if T. Rex did not work out as a band to adopt the name "Zinc Alloy" for continued music-making; a name which partially inspired the persona of Ziggy Stardust. For reasons that may have to do with label mandate "Marc Bolan and T.Rex" was put on the album cover as well. The inclusion of "...And the Hidden Riders of Tomorrow" is most likely a tongue-in-cheek nod to Bowie's successful album.
* [[Creator/MarkWahlberg Marky Mark]] and the Funky Bunch.
* Music/TheSmashingPumpkins's ''Melon Collie and the Infinite Sadness.''
* Music/HootieAndTheBlowfish. Subverted in that "Hootie" is not a character name, even if a lot of people think it is.
** Actually a subversion, as the band was named after two friends of the band members (one friend nicknamed "Hootie", the other nicknamed "the Blowfish"); the ambiguous grammatical number of the latter led people to think it was this trope.
* Parodied by the groups ''Jump 'n' The Saddle'' and ''Phil 'n' The Blanks''.
* "By-Tor and the Snow Dog", a famous Music/{{Rush}} song.
* Music/EltonJohn has the song "Benny and the Jets" and the album ''Capt. Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy''.

* Siouxsie and the Banshees
* Lil Jon and the Eastside Boyz

* Music/QuestionMarkAndTheMysterians , of 1966's "96 Tears" fame
