If you do not resize the GIFs in the Flash editor, export them as
"lossless" (keeps them as GIF files rather than exporting as JPGs), and do
not resize your exported movie to fit the browser window, you can prevent
the GIF files from getting "all chunky weird."

To set the files to "lossless," after importing all your GIF files, bring
up the library for the movie, and, for each image listed (that you use)
double-click on the filename. In the "Bitmap Properties" dialog, uncheck
the "Allow smoothing" option (check, by default), change the "Export as:"
property from "Default" to "Lossless", and then click on the "Update" button.
