2. Proceeding quickly.

This expression may have originated in Scotland, where it's the title of a popular children's song. A song called "Everything Is Tickety-Boo" was recorded by Danny Kaye as part of the film "Merry Andrew".

This expression is heard more often in Canada nowadays. May have originated in the British military. Possibly related to the Hindi expression "tickee babu", meaning "everything's alright, sir". Some people spell it "diggity boo" or "tiggity boo".

Its definition is spreading to include any unnecessary visuals included simply because the fans, presumably, want to see them. Gratuitous nudity, male or female, but also shots of cute mascot animals (e.g., Chuchu the mouse in "Utena").
