What are the bubbles or clouds above a picture or cartoon called?

Perhaps you are referring to the 'word balloons' used by comic

artists to keep dialog separated.

In the UK we call them, 'speech bubbles' or 'thought bubbles'

when they are clouds.

Word processing packages call them, 'call outs'.
