My kids (6, 9, 10) have thoroughly enjoyed running through the catalog of Ghibli/Miyazaki films that are available in English release. Now that we are running out of titles, I was wondering if any MeFi people could suggest more kid-friendly titles that are kind-of-like the Ghibli films, if you know what I mean.

When I browse at the video store it looks like a lot of the titles are action/violence oriented, which is one things that I want to try to stay away from. I also want to avoid films that push the limit on adult content WRT nudity and sex. Maybe that is a tall order, but I can't imagine that there would only be one group of people making films like this (though I can imagine that they never make it to the US).
While we are at it, if you have any suggestions for a good magna series that meets those criterion as well that would be appreciated. It seems that the whole anime/manga thing hit a couple years after I left college, so I am pretty much an interested adult noobie. Web resources appreciated as well. Thanks!
