    Smile Manabunga (US cartoon movie -Barnyard)

    Hi!

    What does 'manabunga' mean? I heard this word from the American cartoon moive- Barnyard. A cow was crying 'Manabunga' while he was jumping into a swimming pool with his pals. The previous and the following scenes are not relevant to this, so I might not offer more context.

    Thank you.
