Unnamed Lion Movie
After Bart upstages Homer's role in the family, Homer is watching an unnamed lion documentary by Declan Desmond. It is about a middle-aged lion (who resembles Homer) who loses his place to a younger lion (who resembles Bart) and does not want to be in the pit with an older lion (who resembles Grandpa) and decides to spend more time with the cub (who resembles Lisa). This then influences Homer to spend more time with Lisa.
Growing Up Springfield
Growing Up Springfield is his most notable documentary. It follows the lives of the inhabitants of Springfield, starting when they were in third grade and continuing every eight years. It is similar to Michael Apted's Up! series.
Other than his three major films in the series Declan has also made many minor films including Do You Want Lies With That?, and Ain't No Mountain High: A Blind Man Climbs Everest. Also two other documentaries that he made where mentioned, the two being "Lost Luggage, Shattered Lives" and "Up-skirt Dreams". He also made a documentary called Wild Animal Planet Kingdom. Thus was a documentary that followed the Simpson family.
After filming Do You Want Lies With That?, Declan passed out. Krusty was turning him into sausage when he woke up again. Only his foot was turned into sausage in the end.
