Actually they've used the term "Death" in a lot of recent Power Rangers series. A lot of modern cartoons are doing it. It's not that that S&P is always trying to turn children's television into Teletubbies, it's that producers started thinking it was true, and in the past couple of years, started to realize it most certainly isn't, and S&P really doesn't care what they do. Case in point, Legend of Korra. Aired Saturday morning on Nickelodeon. Tons of violence. Also contained a scene meant to evoke the image of a victim of sexual assault.
That made it to air, and yet you can't reference a character dying despite said death having clearly occurred? I'm not blaming S&P, I'm blaming whoever cut this up. Maybe Vortex, maybe they're a lot stricter than Cartoon Network or Nickelodeon or the Hub or the Disney Channel. I don't know how they work, all I know is that they're officially the wimpiest of the children's/teen's programming channels.
