Somebody ‘rambunctious’ is rowdy and very difficult to control. They typically exhibit behaviour that is excessively exuberant, but in a cheerful way. For that reason, the term is often used in relation to a boisterous child. While such behaviour may be good-natured, it tends to get on people’s nerves after a while.
