The letter J, in Spanish, is pronounced like the English H. For example, the Spanish name "Jamie" is pronounced "Hi-mee" (that's the closest I can get, anyway), and 'Jose' is pronounced "Hose-ay". So when Joe said Cujo is mispronunced, he was making a joke about the letter J. Spanish pronunciation of it would be 'Koo-ho' :)
