The Guinness Book World Record Holder for the largest collection of Avatar: The Last Airbender memorabilia is from Owasso, Oklahoma. This Nickelodeon show aired for three seasons back in 2005.

Jessica Carey joins Tess Maune on the Arca Continental Coca-Cola Southwest Beverages Porch to share more about her collection.

How did your passion for Avatar: The Last Airbender and collecting begin?

"So I first started watching the show whenever it aired. And I think I really identified with it because of the mix of cultures. It's really heavily Asian-inspired. And I love Asian culture, specifically Japanese. And in this show, there's also like a Native American aspect to it. There's a Native American culture. And I, myself am Cherokee Nation. So there was this blending of my interest as well as what I identify with. And it was just really special that no other show could offer," Carey said.

Do you have a favorite item?

"I do. So I have a whole variety of things. But probably my favorite thing is (the) pilot script. It was something I actually found on eBay a few years after the show had finished airing. And I've never seen another one come back across," Carey said.

What do you get when you are a Guinness World Record Holder?

"You get the certificate. And then you also get kind of a spot on their website like a little highlight. And then just opportunity, opportunity just like this. There are opportunities like with Guinness World, where maybe they want to put you on your their YouTube channel, stuff like that. So a lot of it's just opportunity," Carey said.

How has this show inspired you as an artist?

"So I want to be a TV show creator one day because of this world like being able to tell a story and talk to kids in such a unique way is something that I would love to do. And I do that through my art with background painting," Carey said.

Netflix will soon debut a live-action version of Avatar: The Last Airbender on February 22.
