Excuse me if you have already talked about the movie "The Mask of Zorro" 
(1998)...I wasn't paying too close attention to the recent Groop movie 

I recently watched "The Mask of Zorro" and noticed some uncanny 
similarities to the world of Groo. Here are a few, I am sure others may 
find more:

-Groo: the Zorro apprentice (although in the end is smarter than Groo) 
stumbles along a la Inspector Clousseau in the Pink Panther series. His 
skill with swords (and in some cases two-handed) is very much like Groo.
-Frays: many of the sword fights are very much like those in which we find 
Groo involved.
-Arcadio: the blond army guy (cavalry commander) reminds me of Arcadio.
-Chakaal: Angelina (or Angelica, whatever her name is, Zorro's daughter) is 
very beautiful just like our favorite lady in the Groo world. She is also 
very good with a sword and can fight very well along-side Zorro's appentice.
-Pal & Drum: There is a big Mexican guy and a little bossy Mexican guy that 
reminds me of Pal & Drum.
-Mexico: the story takes place in old Mexico. Isn't Sergio from Mexico?
