Origin of mondo

  • From mondo (bizarro) very bizarre from Italian Mondo (Cane) (A Dog's) World, name of movie with bizarre scenes that was a cult favorite in the 1960s

    From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition

  • From the title of the cult 1962 Italian documentary film Mondo cane, Italian for "A Dog's World", from mondo ("world") and cane (“dog"). The film featured bizarre scenes, leading to English use of mondo as an adverb meaning "very, extremely" in mock-Italian phrases like mondo bizarro.
