because someone asked me to make the background change as part of a site i'm building for them. if you dont ask you dont know what you can i get was his attitude i guess.

You need to ask in the javascript board.

Might not need javascript unless you literally mean swap images. You can set the frame speed of animated gifs individually using a graphics program that handles animated gif creation/editing. Just set the frame speeds to a slow value and the gif will appear to slowly change. But animated gifs can have very slow download times, you have to keep the file size resonable or risk frustrating users with slower internet connections. If you just want color shifting, then javascript is probably a better solution.
