Mau Mau Onomatopoeia?

Hi, not sure if this thread belongs here, sorry if it isnt.

Okay, i was watching Battle Programmer Shirase and i noticed that the fansub group was unable to translate the term "Mau Mau", i googled the word and several hits came up, but just to be sure is there any native japanese speakers can confirm whether this is a japanese onomatopoeia?

It seems taht this term has a historial african history and it also means Media Access Unit or Multiaccess Station, but those are pretty technical computer related.

Thx. Ja.

According to one of the opening/clossing summaries it really doesn't mean anything. It's just something silly to say. There may be a translation for the word though.

I was told mau means cat in one of the Chinese dialects, but I doubt the mau mau in BPS is supposed to mean anything. Guess it's there to increase Misao's kawaiiness factor. And make you laugh when the announcer does it .
