I've now run a longer profile, with image.el loaded (not .elc), and
the profile is this:

  - timer-event-handler                                            2905  90%
   - apply                                                         2905  90%
    - image-animate-timeout                                        2858  88%
     - if                                                          2858  88%
      - progn                                                      2858  88%
       - let*                                                      2858  88%
        - image-multi-frame-p                                      2858  88%
         - if                                                      2858  88%
          - progn                                                  2858  88%
             let*                                                  2858  88%
    + url-queue-run-queue                                            47   1%

IOW, it insists that the problem is in the call to image-metadata.
Which probably mean most of the time is spent in lookup_image?

Can you run Emacs under prof to see what happens on the C level?

Btw, if I wait for a while (maybe 20 sec), the slowness disappears,
and Emacs becomes responsive again, although the animation still goes
on.  So perhaps what causes this is some initial processing?  (I have
no idea what's involved in displaying an animated GIF.)
