Another way to do this so that the background color shows up in the render is to use the Toon_Ink_Lens shader on your camera. To do this, open the property page on your camera, go to the Lens Shader tab, click on Add, pick the Toon_Ink_Lens shader from the explorer window, click on "Toon_Ink_Lens" in the window (Camera property page Lens Shader tab) - and click on the "Inspect" button. In the property page that opens, go to the Advanced tab, and check the box that says "Require Host" - then go to the Background tab and check the "Enable" box (then choose your background color).

This will effectively kill off your alpha channel, but if you want a render with a background color without having to composite it in later, this is a technique that will work for you.
