The older Willy Wonka, has them being mean and bratty, but the worst is the boat scene, that freaked me out big time as a kid.

I agree think classic, I think Pollyanna is wonderful, same vein, I loved Thomasina also a classic Disney film. Mary Poppins, the original Absent Minded Professor is great. Though it has some mild racism (a over the top actor playing an Asian man), I love The Ugly Dachshund. Overall I think almost any of the old classic Disney live action films are mostly pretty good outside Old Yeller.

As a child, I LOVED "A Little Princess" (Shirley Temple). There was a time where I watched it everyday. Its sad in places, but she finds her father in the end.

.
After we read the Roald Dahl book, dd begged and begged to see the original Willy Wonka. I was completely worried about the boat scene, which also scared me as a kid. I warned her about it, offered to skip it, etc. As it turned out, she wasn't the slightest bit bothered by it. I can never predict what will or won't scare her. It's been a big leap of faith for me to let her figure out her own comfort zone (within reason, of course).

Love, love, love Finding Nemo. I know he is a character, but Disney has not made a big franchise out of him. I also really just adore the plot -- the importance of family, believing in yourself, building confidence as a kid. Good luck choosing. Lord knows we let our two year old watch TV all the time. Kudos to you for your decision.

Studio ghibli is similar to Disney but is, in my opinion, more imaginative and treats females as main characters and doesn't make them dependent on males. (which I LOVE)
Yes!!!! Ponyo is a favorite around here.

Most likely nursing and typing. Please pardon any mistakes.
