The Internet has many animated GIF files, they are funny to watch. Does Python have a way to play those?

I am asking to much?

Yes, wxPython has a a method called GIFAnimationCtrl in the module wx.animate that will do just that. I think it is relatively new, available in the latest version 2.6 of wxPython. It works well and I posted a small code snippet at:
