Anything that is (a) free of anti-Torah content and (b.) does not involve entertainment-style education that trains young minds not to work when learning. Even non-Jewish material will do. I would recommend, like Rav Avigdor Miller did many years ago, super-hero comics, where the good guys always beat the bad ones, except that nowadays they're full of Pritzus and gory violence. So try something like Owly, or some Disney stuff (the ones without romance). Of course, if you can stick to Jewish material, all the better.

It's probably possible to find old comic books like Rav Miller was talking about (just dont get one that is till being punished, they'll jsut want the newer ones).
What about Uncle Moishy videos? It's videos, which promote non-thinking, but that's just dressing to the music.

It's better than Pritzus and violence.
