Paliwoda graduated with honors from the Cleveland Institute of Art in the early 1930s, thereafter touring Europe on a year's art scholarship. Paliwoda worked as an animator for Walt Disney Studios from 1935 to 1960. Among his many assignments was to animate the characters "Jasper" and "Horace", who were the henchmen of the female villain, "Cruella deVille", in the animated feature film, One Hundred and One Dalmatians. While at Disney he helped organize the Motion Picture Screen Cartoonists, Local 839 IATSE, and was one of the 21 charter members of that union. After leaving Disney he worked for many other studios, including Hanna-Barbera, Filmation, and Bakshi Productions. He retired from animation in 1983. For his lifetime of work in the animation field, Paliwoda received the Animation Guild's Golden Award in 1985.
Paliwoda died of natural causes on June 9, 1999, in Manhattan Beach, California, just a few months short of his 90th birthday.
