You can do it with MSpaint like this:
Save your picture as a 256 colour bitmap.
In the Save As Dialogue box, open the Drop Down menu that's next to Save As Type...
and select 256 colour bitmap.
ill try that

8 bit colour just means it has a maximum of 256 different colours.
To make an image 8 bit, you can draw your cartoon, then use photoshop
Open image.
Image->Mode->Indexed colour
Choose 256 colours.
