Streaming video service Hulu is today launching its own tool for fans of GIFs, with the debut of its own GIF search engine powered by Tumblr.

The new site, dubbed "The Perfect GIF," isn't just a standard Tumblr blog, however, but more of customized Tumblr experience where you can search for and discover TV-related GIFs by tag, show, reaction or action involved.

The idea behind the new project, it seems, is to help seed social media with high-quality GIFs based on Hulu's own licensed and original content, then capitalize on those GIFs' spread to market the Hulu brand to Tumblr's younger demographic.

Yes, the Hulu GIFs are branded with the hashtag #Hulu as well as the name of the show and its network's logo, in most cases.

That sort of mars the experience for GIF purists who will often apologize when they've accidentally GIF'd something that features a network logo or another overlay on top of the GIF they've shared to their blog.
