Nixon on the $300 Bill

Little is known of what Richard M. Nixon did between 2000 and 3000, though it is known he spent some time in the Presidential wing of the Head Museum (1ACV01). Later that year, however, he ran a successful dark horse campaign and was elected President of Earth, sweeping the robot vote with his charismatic new robotic body (2ACV03). In 3010, he resigned from the Presidency when Lrrr, ruler of the planet Omicron Persei 8, invaded (6ACV11). Nixon probably regained office afterwards, though. He is known to join the Robot Devil for poker nights.

As a tax refund Richard Nixon printed a $300 'Tricky Dick Fun Bill' for all Earthicans. His picture is featured on the front. He is also on the 1000 Dollar Bill.

Trivia

  • Nixon Makes the "Aroo!" noise because he reminds Billy West of a werewolf and also his performance is partially based on the way Anthony Hopkins portrayed the man in Oliver Stone's 1995 film "Nixon".
  • Richard Nixon's head is an extra in the Toynami Futurama collectible of Zapp Brannigan.Underneath it is a peg.This peg is used for connecting Nixon to Bender's body when you remove his head. This is a reference to "A Head in the Polls", in which Nixon bought Bender's body so that he can be elected again since the law says, "nobody can be elected twice".
  • Staged the Moon Landing, on Venus
  • The headless body of Agnew was Richard Nixon's vice president.
  • Nixon dislikes being a head. He was extremely fond of his body, and describes it as "flabby, pasty-skinned, riddled with phlebitis - a good Republican body."
  • Nixon can continue to use the loop hole that allowed him to become president in 3000 by simply changing bodies every second election, if the term is limited to four years as it was for the US he would have already changed bodies in 3008.

    Nixon's head: Listen here, missy. Computers may be twice as fast as they were in 1973, but your average voter is as drunk and stupid as ever.
