    TOODLE-00 interjection tood-l-oo)

    interjection

    (1) Informal. goodbye; so long.

    Quotes

    All right. Well, toodle-oo. I'm off to find Stinker.
    -- P. G. Wodehouse, The Code of the Woosters, 1938

    Have you charted that journey, or is the best you can say, "Toodle-oo! We don't know where we are going, but we're on our way!"
    -- "Hiking with Green Bar Bill," Boys' Life, January 1946

    Origin

    The origin of toodle-oo is unclear. It may be from toodle, a variant of tootle, which means "to walk unsteadily, like a toddler." It may also be from tootle, which means “to toot gently (on a flute); to move slowly or leisurely.” Finally, the word may be imitative of the toot of an (early) automobile horn or klaxon. None of the three possibilities satisfactorily accounts for the -oo element. The word appeared in English in the early 1900s.
