Is the "never say die" censorship needed?

I find it funny when they try to censor death, and make things worse. Yu-Gi-Oh! for example. Instead of dying, people went to the Shadow Realm in the 4kids dub, which seem like a fate worse than death.
Even Sesame Street dealt with death XD
For Spider-Man and such, I think it's more of a timeslot and marketing thing though. That was Saturday morning TV, I think. Right? They don't want it all that heavy in the kid's lineup while eating sugary cereal and watching toy commercials. But, Batman, which was at the start a primetime show (and on weekdays too, I think?) that had guns and all of that. More of an audience and purpose thing, than medium or era issue
