Children's movies with no
scary parts that a parent can stand to watch?

My husband and I want to watch movies with our kids, but our six-year-old son has no -- repeat, no
-- tolerance for anything at all scary. He couldn't even watch Dora the Explorer
until recently, because of Swiper. I've asked for suggestions before for things for him
, but now I'm hoping to find family movies that really are for the whole family. He and his three-year-old sister like Blue's Clues
and Sesame Street
, but those aren't movies we're all going to want to kick back and watch together.
Things we've tried that didn't work out: Bedknobs and Broomsticks
, A Night at the Museum
, My Neighbor Totoro
, Flushed Away
, Happy Feet
, The Muppets Take Manhattan
, Finding Nemo
, Space Chimps
, March of the Penguins
, the preview for Up
... you get the idea. They all have scary or tense scenes that he can't handle.
P.S. I'm much less uptight than I was when I asked that previous question. I will settle for shows that are marketed to Hell and back. I just want to watch a movie with my kids, damn it.
