Speech Balloons

Besides giving the cartoon a soundtrack, they give voice and thought to cartoon characters and they can be used to express very complicated narratives, ideas & meanings. Speech balloons can be any shape or symbol; as long as they emit from the mouth, or from the mind, as in thought balloons. Speech balloons are usually drawn like balloons, but not always. Thought balloons are usually cloud shaped objects, but not always.
