Saturday Morning Cartoon - Beast Wars II: Lio Convoy's Close Call!

Saturday Morning Cartoons are thing of the past, but that doesn't mean we can't still watch them on Saturday. With just about everything available via streaming nowadays, why not do our own thing for Saturday mornings.

Today we're going for something a bit longer and more obscure from overseas. "Beast Wars II: Lio Convoy's Close Call!" was an extended release that was outside of the TV shows timeline. In this we find the Maximals, led by Lio Convoy, the Predacons led by Galvatron and a mysterious device that has crashed on Planet Gaia (a future version of Earth), leading to the arrival of Maximal warrior, and the protagonist of the original Beast Wars series, Optimus Primal. Galvatron also uses the device to summon a monster Decepticon called Majin Zarak who threatens to destroy all the Maximals. Watch now via YouTube with subtititles:
