An expression of mild surprise or shock from '60s-'70s. Popularized by cartoon character Velma of the '70s children's show Scooby-Doo. Rarely used today, except in an ironic fashion. A very wholesome word.
"Jeepers! You sure surprised me!" Claire exclaimed, then laughed along with her friends at the silly anachronism.
