If we say that someone can "take" someone else in a fight, it means that they can beat them. In the cartoon above, Wilberforce is saying that Elmo Stitch would win a fight with the man in the red jumper (Wilberforce's father?)

What does "get me" mean in the dialogue above? Something like "call me"?

Yes. "Get me" means to "get him involved".

Instead of posting the cartoon, could you post a link to the webpage in future to avoid any copyright issues. Thanks.
