We got a more accurate version of Usagi Yojimbo, the debut of the Utroms and not just Krang, the first black Baxter Stockman in cartoons as he should be, the debut of the Shredder clones, human Foot Soldiers for an entire series, Splinter in his Mirage origin, etc.

The 2k3 series made a lot of Mirage-only concepts mainstream. Likewise new characters like Bishop and Hun became TMNT staples, as they're also in the current IDW comics.
And just like the original comic books, it was largely forgotten and ignored in favor of more lighthearted version.

As someone who considers 2k3 series to be the best incarnation of TMNT (as far as TV series go) it's really sad. But, well, maybe one day we will have a resurgence of its popularity. Or not.
Now with 150% more poison!
