Why does Richard Nixon always say a-roo on Futurama?

Billy West, the voice actor who voices Nixon in Futurama says that as a child he thought Nixon would turn into a werewolf. Therefore the Aroo โ€“ Nixon about to turn into a werewolf.

โ€œI was a child when Nixon was debating Kennedy on television, and we went to watch it. And on one side, hereโ€™s this GQ model with that buttered-toast, perfect game-show hair, you know, and then thereโ€™s this sweaty mess with jowls and a 5:00 shadow that came in at 2:00 and sweating.

You know, and so I said to my mom: Mom, it looks like heโ€™s going to turn into a werewolf, you know, because it was like Larry Talbot turning into the werewolf, you know. You know, thatโ€™s what it seemed like to me. So thatโ€™s why I gave him that sort of thing. Everybody said why do you -why does he say a-roo? Why? Why? And I said, well, itโ€™s just a thing of my own that I threw in there. โ€œ
