"Chitty chitty bang bang" — the title of a fantasy movie from 1968.

 

See http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0062803/

 

Chitty chitty bang bang was the name of a magic flying car, the "star" of the movie.  It is called that because of the sound its engine makes:  "chitty chitty" presumably for fuel and steam intake, and "bang bang" for the exhaust.

 

Check it out, it is still a delightful movie even 40 years later.

 

Be well.
