Animated GIF

I have put an animated GIF in a JLabel in the following manner.
ImageIcon ic1 = new ImageIcon("names.gif");
JLabel jl = new JLabel(ic1);
The Jlabel is placed on a Panel.
I have developed an application and I am showing the credits on an animated gif (names.gif).
I am setting the panel visibility on or off depending on the user action.
When the panel is set Visible again, the animated gif does not reload.
I would like to know the method by which the animated gif reloads so that it starts from first when the panel visibility is turned on.
I created a new instance of the ImageIcon everytime, the panel visibility is turned on, but in Vain........
I would be grateful, if you could kindly throw some light on the above matter.
Thanking you in advance,

Arun Iyer
