Bobby Zamora inspired Fulham to a triumphant 130th anniversary match as Jimmy Bullard endured a torrid return to Craven Cottage.
Zamora struck his second Barclays Premier League goal of the season before setting up a second for strike partner Diomansy Kamara as Fulham climbed to 12th in the table.
It was a deserved victory against an abysmal Hull side who remain mired in the relegation zone with little hope of escaping if they continue to play like this.
Bullard's arrival in the 58th minute failed to spark a revival, the record £5million signing instead having to contend with a hostile reception from the fans who once idolised him.
The midfielder was making only his second appearance for Hull after suffering a serious knee injury on his debut last January but from the moment he appeared for the warm-up he was jeered.
Surrounded by his lifeless Hull team-mates, he made little impact with Damien Duff instead emerging as the star performer in a one-sided contest.
