Hi Scott,

You need to make a selection of the cartoon figure. Check the gimp manual on
how to do this, there are too many ways to explain all here. 
Then go to select float. 
Then create a new layer.
Make the background layer invisible or delete the background layer if you no
longer need it.

Hope this helps.
