I'm missing a few of the clues, but I'm quite confident the duo is:

Bert and Ernie

The clues which support this:

The jar looks like it could be an Urn, and the equation as identified by @Vicky equates to E. Add these together and you get Urn-e (Ernie).

The film It's A Wonderful Life has a Bert and Ernie combo. Ernie was a Taxi Driver and Bert a policeman. Combining this with Frank Oz, the original performer of Bert (the muppet from Sesame Street), goes a long way to explain the title.

I haven't deciphered the meaning of the T [scissors] [hand shape] ? section though.

OP Edit:

The T - Scissors - Hand spells the name "Tim". Scissors = I, and the hand is the sign language symbol for the letter "M". The question mark at the end signifies that we are looking for something other than the name "Tim". The scissors and hand sign hint toward Tim "Burton" (Edward Scissorhands). This brings the clues to read "Burton Urn E" = Bert and Ernie


Partial answer...

The equation represents

Einstein's energy triangle so equates to E

The cylindrical container looks like a

Hu jar (burial jar)

The hand shape looks like

The ASL M shape
