GIF is already compressed but the animation could be optimized further by other 
means, this tool may help http://www.lcdf.org/gifsicle/.

Other than being limited to 256 colors (and 1-bit transparency), GIF is
lossless. You could try scaling the images down and/or running that GIF
through an optimizer (can't think of any off the top of my head since I
rarely deal with GIF).
