I looke dit up on a noline dictionary of colloquial language, the expression super-duper is informal and it means extremely pleasing, impressive, etc. and it īs odten used as an exclamation.
Hope it has been useful :-)

Hiya
 
It means excellent, amazing, incredible  e.g.  I had a super duper time today
 
If you google it you will see examples of usage.  Some people also spell it super dooper.
 
Cheers
