Interests
here's my more precise observations so far, after seeing 1/2 of Thief and the Cobbler. 

Zigzag is MUCH more obvious with what he's doing. He doesn't come off as sly or sneaky in any way, not even devious. He telegraphs every move loudly and clearly. He lays out his takeover plot in one piece, we don't have to follow his logic or train of thought. Rule, marry Princess, the end. 

Jafar hides his next move even from the audience, and sometimes he decides the next move on a whim. He doesn't have everything planned out and while Zigzag is very funny to watch, I can't sympathize with him at this point in the movie. Zigzag's power is limited by Nod but there's no threat either to his job or his life if he displeases King Nod. If the Sultan is weak, King Nod is almost a nonentity. 

On another note, bad thoughts arise when watching the Nod/Zigzag scenes....XD

Zigzag is less quick to anger but he has--a screw loose, and not in a good way. Paradoxically, he's predictable. We know he has it in for Tack, as in immediate and painful death. We know he's going to parade in with at least a few yes-men. He doesn't really skulk despite his hunched shoulders. Some interesting things--he drops his facade and reveals his plans--still smiling though-- while in his lair, not while going to his lair. 

I think, the biggest personality difference that strikes me is that Jafar is a master of the frequent 180---

"Oh how very, very, sad..CHANGE 'EM BACK NOW! THAT'S AN ORDER!" 

And

"It's mine...it's all mine. Where is it? No..NOOOOOOOO!"

And 

"Take one step and die, you brainless miscreant! Apologies..what I meant to say is.."

Zigzag has yet to do this switch-on, switch off. Happy, somewhat sly sycophant, happy, somewhat sly schemer, happy, crazy authority figure who likes his victims dead. Looks to be capable of immense anger, but hasn't shown it yet. 

Visually which sticks  out the most, Jafar's eyelids are always heavy, he looks drunk or drug-addicted, and his eyebrows reach his eyes, making his expressions of anger more palpable, and his malicious grins more malicious. Zigzag looks crazed but never drunk or drug-addicted, and his eyebrows never reach his eyes, making his few expressions of anger rather scary but not heavy, not inviting sympathy. Zigzag also doesn't have a malicious smile, this again has to do with the eyebrows-eye combination.

Whew.

So one of our local radio stations incorporates soundbites from different movies and TV shows into its station bumpers. One of them has Jafar's big "NOOOOOOOOO!" from when he realizes Aladdin and Abu made off with the lamp. I'm pretty sure there's another Jafar soundbite they've played on occasion, but can't remember which one.

Thought you might appreciate it ;)
