The 4Kids show lasted as long because of various reasons which included it being Laird's pet project, 4kids first (only?) original series, being in the b-tier network so most shows there weren't of huge quality to bump it, the toys figures selling well and the movie reviving interest in the series, Kids WB being bought out by 4Kids and now needing two channels worth of programming block.

I'm not trying to argue it wasn't a success but for the amount of content it got, it was more than more successful shows but it being under the radar of the mainstream and just being at the right place at the right time definitely helped it.

The Nick show began under performing and they quickly decided to replaced it, only because they really put their money behind the brand did it get 5 seasons, if not it would've ended before if say it was a licensed show and not a in house production
