"The Wind in the Willows" - Animals dressed in Victorian-era clothing in the middle of the woods. Depending on which version you get the villains range from being inept to not scary in the least bit.
"Bedknobs and Broomsticks" - A delightful old movie with Angela Lansbury set during World War II, about a witch who fights for England in the war effort. Sure the villains are Nazis, however they're possibly the most pathetic Nazis you've ever seen.
"The Fantastic Mr. Fox" - I just recently saw this one, and it was a blast. Based off a book written by Roald Dahl who also wrote "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory". The villains are quite simply three rich farmers/industrialists and the paranoid city that they hold in their pockets. It's quirky and fun.
Anything from the "Buddies" series from Disney - these are a spinoff of the "Air Bud" films about a golden retriever who's talented at sports. The "Buddies" are his puppies, and in each film they go on a new adventure.
Try the English dubbed version of "My Neighbor Totoro". It's very cute and has Zero violence... The only scene of conflict is in the form of an older sister/younger sister petty spat which is quite mundane between siblings. Plus, the voice actors are skilled and charming.
I have been wondering the same thing! We have watched the new Muppet movie with our son a few times and though there are some bad guys they don't do anything very scary. Our son is pretty sensitive and it didn't scare him even at age two.
The only other movie he has seen is Cars and it didn't really have any bad guys.
I have also heard that Happy Feet is not at all scary.
We had the same problem with our five children. We ended up getting away from many of the kids movies with people and sticking more to the ones with animals. Even though these do have some villans, they tend not to be so frightening. We also watch a lot of classics. My kids love the Marx Brothers and other older movies.
LOL I was only 4 when JP came out; my mom took me & my sister to see it in theaters! She had no idea... she covered my eyes during the velociraptor attack early in the movie, and I tried as hard as I could to pry her hands off my face to see!!
I also thought it was frightful!! StandingJaguar - did you later have flashbacks? My son can't stop watching scary stuff, but then he cries when he has to go to the bathroom alone because there are "giants behind the potty"!
There is definitely a lot of violence and scary characters these days. You might try some along the Air Buds line such as Snow Buddies..I also like The Adventures of Milo and Otis; Homeward Bound:The Incredible Journey; and my daughter really loved watching episodes of Little House On The Prairie..
I have the same problem with my two. Their favorite movie right now is The Lorax. I noticed they got a little better with movies after seeing Hotel Transylvania, it has a lot of monsters but they created them in a way where they aren't scary. I was so nervous taking them to see it, but they really liked it.
I’m really trying to think of some but that is a tough question. You can’t even rely on Disney for movies that aren’t too scary. You might try something like Back to the Future and Home Alone where the bad guys aren’t so much scary as they are goofy comedy.
If your children are 5 and older, you should check out Rookie of the Year. It is funny for adults and kids alike. You can also look at the High School Musical series, as it is pretty tame. If you want animation, I recommend Cars, but not Cars 2, and Curious George.
