Movie about a kid inventor?

I saw a movie in the early 70s, the film itself may be early 70s or late 60s. The movie starts with a kid waking up by an alarm clock (that he invented?) which pulls a string attached to his toe to wake him up. He excitedly goes down to the kitchen and has a piece of cake for breakfast (it may or may not be his birthday). Then he happily runs off to do whatever he’s going to do…

That’s all I remember from the whole movie.

PLEASE HELP! Does anyone know?

" The Whiz Kid and the Mystery at Riverton" (1974)?

OMG! He didn’t eat the cake, he ate an apple because of Mom.


I’ve literally been trying to figure this out for a DECADE! I post here and it’s solved in 5 minutes.


Guess what I’ll be watching today…
