Protagonist and Friends
A title that consists of the main character's name with "And Friends" or some variationnote  attached to the end of it. This is commonly justified, as these type of shows are often adapted from more than one franchise (Garfield and Friends having Garfield and U.S. Acres, for example).

This is extremely common in children's shows and sitcoms, the latter usually being the Syndication Title.

A Sub-Trope of My Friends... and Zoidberg and Character Title. Could also be considered a form of a Spotlight-Stealing Title.
