It's not an action cartoon, not really. It might have been the original intention but that was changed as early as season 2 and it was pretty much a comedy pretending to be an action show from then on.

So yeah, I'd say SpongeBob and Fairly Odd Parents has beaten it in it's genre, the genre that it actually is. Then you look at stuff like Scooby-Doo and Super Friends (the latter of which is an action show) that basically just kept changing it's name every season, but were otherwise still the same show and still lasted pretty damn long. Then there's of course a modern example of that, Ben 10, which lasted 230 episodes.

So yeah, if you count action shows that changed their names over and over again, Ben 10 has 230 episodes without any reboots which means that it would beat out TMNT by 37 episodes.
