That was donkey doodle dandy!

I only know Yankee Doodle Dandy is a 1942 American biographical musical film after I checked wikipedia. But I don't know the meaning of "donkey doodle dandy" in the following sentence.

FRANNY: Woah!!!!Woah!!! We're in a race! Go Salsa go! That was donkey doodle dandy!

(Quoted from an animated series for children Franny's Feet. The scene above is how a donkey named Salsa wins the race with Franny carried on his back. Franny is very excited and says the words above.)

Thanks very much!

    "dandy" can mean fantastic/great. This is a childish combination of donkey and dandy using the format of Yankee Doodle dandy
