Initially worked as an animator for Creator/FleischerStudios and its successor Creator/FamousStudios. He also apprenticed under Creator/OttoMessmer on the Felix the Cat comic books, eventually taking up art duties on the strip when Otto retired from it in the 1950's. When he jumpstarted his own cartoon studio, he managed to license the Felix the Cat character from the Pat Sullivan estate and create the now-iconic made-for-TV revival of the character. Eventually, Joe bought out the series from Sullivan's estate and licensed out the series up to his death in 1985.

His son, Don Oriolo, inherited the Felix character from him.
