Probably originated from a comical slurring of the words "let's get out of here", resulting in "let's skedaddle". Possibly related to the Greek "skedastios" ('dispersion').
- To move or run away quickly, especially from something frightening.
#:The sheep skedaddled as soon as the shepherd's dog came near.
