Pitts Landing is a town featured in both Say Cheese and Die! and its sequel, Say Cheese and Die — Again!.


Pitts Landing is described by Greg Banks and his friends as a boring town with very little to do. They repeat the phrase "Pitts Landing is the pits" several times as their own little town slogan.
