It's not really at all, aside from both having a very obviously cartoony aesthetic. While some of the visuals were slapstick and over the top, it never got to the level of gross exaggeration that defines Ren and Stimpy, and the story structure was always far more coherent.
As for why people really love it, I suppose it's just because it has a very timeless feel to it, is legitimately funny even as an adult, and captures this childhood nostalgia in a way that few shows can really do successfully. Add in the fact that it never really got bad (mediocre toward the end of its lifespan, absolutely, but never bad) and it ended up getting one of the best send offs to an animated children's series that I've personally ever seen, and you have the ingredients for an instant classic.
