A Pear of Blue Eyes
The Lady of the Rake

How very clever you all are!  I can only come up with a couple of old classics:

Jane Pear by Charlotte Browntree
Nicholas Nicked-a-bee by Charles Dioxin
David Copperspray - ditto.
Older-Burr Twist by Charles Dock-out.
Gardening by the Moonstone by Milky Cottons.
Briar and Bread Juices by Rain Mossy Tin.

I think I'm now scraping the bottom of the barrel.  

WHAT MAIZE HE KNEW
THE PRUNE AND SIXPENCE
A LA RECHERCHE DU TOMS PERDU
THE QUEEN OF SPUDS
EUGENE ONIONGIN
THE RAPE OF THE LEEK
THE KREUTZER TOMATO

There's a play by Mike Harding called 'Fur Coat and No Knickers' which might be transmogrified into

FIR CONE AND NO KNICKERS
